uhhh...prolly not considering how the red and green colorations aren't codominate genes nor have incomplete dominance/intermediate forms...

you should know that by now. A punnett square is used to find the possible traits of the offspring. here is an example of a punnett square

basically you fill it up with the traits of the mother and father on the the sides, in this example the farther has two dominant traits (RR) and the mother two recessive (rr) you fill it by top to bottom and left to right to see what the offspring would look like, for example the capital R could represent tall plants and lowercase r could represent short plants . hope that answered your question and if you still don't understand it okay i really suck at explaining stuff...

Coquillage is very unique, I've been trying to find one for a long time.

Are these vigorous growers, or or are they more like dentate and don't grow very fast?

I'd be interested to hear anything you can tell us about the characteristics of either of these. :)

I agree with Timmy. Dente or Dentata is a great looking VFT with big traps and triangle teeth. The one I have colors up really well in the sun. My bare root 'Pink' is growing fast and has nice deep color with green highlights. Someone else mentioned Dutch as a vigorous grower. I will have to try that one. One of my best VFTs is one I got from Home Depot last year. I don't know the variety, but it is very bright red with large traps on short petiols that stay low. Nice flytrap :D

Fused tooth has to be my fave and also red line, but i've had difficulty finding a red line. Wacky traps look really cool too!

My favourite from my collection is my sawtooth and sharkstooth..

Although i'd really like a cupped trap or wacky trap!
