I am sure someone will correct me if I am wrong, but if you're looking for this particular VFT, you should get a leaf pulling or buy the actual plant. Seeds from any specific cultivar doesn't guarantee you're going to get that specific plant, since VFT come in cultivars and not subspecies.

bvalente is right. The seeds may look similar too, or completely different from, BZ1955. Flytrap cultivars are propagated via natural divisions, leaf pullings, or tissue culture. Any VFT that grows from a seed cannot be regarded as an existing cultivar.

As SundewWolf says, if you grow a plant from self pollinated BZ1955 seed, you cannot call the seedling BZ1955. All seedlings are typicals, even if they have the traits of their parents. The reason is that all seedlings (even from a self-pollinated plant) do not have identical DNA to their parent(s). Only direct clones (natural divisions made by the plant or root cuttings) have identical DNA and therefore can be called by that cultivar name.

Also, if you're just starting in growing flytraps, most people here will recommend starting with an adult plant. They are much much easier to take care of than seedlings, and you won't have to wait three years for an adult plant.
