Here's are some of my seed-grown flytraps. These little squirts are about a year and a half old now. Their parents were A2, B52, Dutch Delight, Flaming Lips, GrĂ¼n, Low Giant, Megatrap, Vigorous, and typicals in assorted combinations. I like traps with bright-red interiors, and I definitely succeeded with some of these.

In case you're wondering, the surface of the tray is LFS (originally). I misted the seedlings with diluted Maxsea last summer, and algae bloomed on the moss. Now it looks like they're potted in baked beans....

Looks like there is a Drosera filiformis var. floridana in the top left corner too. Nice!

@Matt: Considering the parentage of these plants, I'm not surprised that some big ones are popping up. That one is on my keeper list. Now all I have to do is find some fruit flies or sugar ants to feed them so they'll put on some size.

@sanguinearocks101: Yeah, that looks like a pure-blooded var. floridana. Most of them refused to go dormant last fall, and my cold weather killed them. The hybrids between var. filiformis and var. floridana survived the winter without a fuss. They have a nice mix of traits from the two varieties.
