I am looking for some very rare and weird VTFs. I am looking for VTF "waky traps", double trapped, 'cudo', "fuzed tooth"and other strange ones. They do not have to be in the us and they could be shops/websites to buy them.

You can order "Cudo" from bestcarnivorousplants.com

I thought you could get 'Wacky Traps' from Trev Cox's VFTshop.com, but I can't seem to find it there. Also, he doesn't ship to the US.

I've never seen a Double Trapped plant that is stable. Have you seen this plant being traded? I think a double trap on a VFT is just an anomaly.

"Fused Tooth" can be found in the US from several people. David Conner of connerscarnivores.com has them.

Yeah, Trev won't ship to the US. Also, those double traps are just freaks and that characteristic isn't stable. If you grow enough VFTs, you'll see a double trapped leaf from time to time.

Yeah, the double-traps are a fairly frequent anomaly, not a stable characteristic. Here's a partial double-trap I had last year--

I also had another leaf on a Big Vigorous Flytrap last year in which the petiole (lower part of the leaf) separated in half, and each of the two halves continued to grow and mature and each developed two traps side by side for a total of 4 traps on one leaf. That was the first time I had seen that.

No, you wouldn't.

Every cell in the plant has the exact same DNA map as the rest of the plant. It would only exhibit that specific trait under certain conditions.
