Hey guys, thought it would be fun to share your favorite cultivars, official and unofficial.
Post your favorites with a pic of it in all its glory and whether you have obtained the plant or are wishing to.

FTS Purple Ambush
ever since I saw this clone here in the forum years ago I fell in love with it. I'm currently talking to a grower to hopefully get a clone of this plant....finally

Fussed Tooth
another of my favorites, it reminds me of a cartoonish Scoobie doo version of a vft. I had one once but it was in the days of over-watering and clumsy hands.... one day I would like to get it again.

Well, that's it for now, I could go on and on :lol: but hard getting good pics to represent their best.

Well, I have to say my favorite Venus flytrap cultivar would have to be the only one I own! My FTS Maroon Monster. It's a hardy plant that grows well. This season it's been a little weird though. I think it got burned in early spring and it stopped doing anything for a couple weeks. But it's seemed to have recovered and is looking good.

I usually like the funky cultivars, but this year my giants are looking really good. My all time favorite VFT cultivar is probably "Destroyer", but for the ones I have it's a tie between B52 and FTS Towering Giant.

My favorite cultivar is “GJ Bloody Nurse” it makes awesome looking traps and can get quite big too. Sadly it cannot eat very well and needs an actual live insect to stimulate it enough times so the trap can seal, unlike normal flytraps, for “GJ Bloody Nurse” you need to constantly trigger the hairs over and over and the trap barley moves but eventually it’ll close. That’s what I’m noticing so far, I’m not sure about the mature traps or the inward facing traps as well.

My favorite is the alien cultivater I don’t have one. Though because they are way to exspensive but I still like them😂👍
