No problem:) You should be quiet about choosing one of them, tough. Some of them are hard to grow, I had grown more than 100 of various clones from Czech Republic once (I were selling them in Poland) and had big losses at start because they were fresh TC plants, and some of them were delicate even several months later.

the low giant, Akai Ryu, and typical. Those are my favorites. The red VFT's are so pretty!

I'd like to grow some big meancing ones :lol: so i'm guessing my favorite would be the B52, that's the cultivar with the largest traps, right?

Yep, B52 is supposed to have the largest traps, but there are quite a few cultivars with traps that are very similar in size.

I'm hoping to start a Dionaea breeding program to try to get some desirable clones. One I'd like to see is a red plant with traps as large as a B52!

Oooh, that would be cool to get a red VFT with giant traps. Soon you could get them to eat people! ;) Just kidding.

Through selective breeding. If you keep crossing red colored fly traps with other large fly traps (red or green) and select out the babies that are red with the largest traps and then subsequently breed them again with large trapped plants, one can produce a large-trapped red flytrap (hopefully).

Well you probably will get some red large trapped plants but the rest will be green, lol. I imagine most, actually.
