FTS Crimson Sawtooth

FTS Crimson Sawtooth

Availability: Out of stock

FTS Crimson Sawtooth is a deep red plant with short, highly serrated marginal teeth, developed by the Flytrap Store breeding and tissue culture program, an improvement upon the older Red Piranha, with wider, more substantial leaves and a neater growth habit.


A Flytrap Store original Venus Flytrap clone, the "FTS Crimson Sawtooth" is a product of the Flytrap Store breeding program and tissue culture lab, a selected seed-grown plant propagated in sterile tissue culture for sale and distribution. Although FTS Crimson Sawtooth may in some ways resemble the standard Venus Flytrap clone Red Piranha, both of which have short, sharp "teeth" and red-tinged leaves, we consider FTS Crimson Sawtooth an improvement upon the older clone.

Quick delivery and a healthy, thriving plant! Everything the website promised!
This plant came very quickly and in extremely good shape. There were a couple of small, black traps at the bottom, but the majority of the plant was thriving. It was very deep red and it stayed this color. It was bigger than I expected and I count two growing points. A great purchase!

Couldnt be more happy
first off the packaging was immaculate, then I saw the plant and this VFT was beautiful!! I think I counted 14 traps, including the older less healthy looking ones. My next favorite thing was that there was this bright green sticker that says "you do not need to re pot"...awesome! they freshly potted this plant before sending it, and then said I dont need to worry about that for at least 9 months. Thats awesome service right there. I cant wait to order more plants from FTS again, there are at the top of industry as far as quality and service...WOW WOW WOW. keep it up guys thank you

Stellar Plant and Customer Service!
What an absolutely stunning plant! FTS went above and beyond with their customer service, going out of their way to make sure that I was contacted when this cultivar was in stock. I have been raving about this store to anyone who will listen because I am so impressed with their wonderful communication and the gorgeous plant that I received in an incredibly short amount of time! It was very well packed and has arrived completely healthy with all the traps in beautiful color. Can't recommend ordering this wonderful little friend from here enough!

Absolutely stunning
Ive had my fts cs for about a week now, first off let me say I only ordered a starter plant, what they sent me was easily a young adult maybe even a adult plant! The plant has absolutely stunning deep maroon & lime green colors! I dont have any other red fly traps to compare to yet but I cant image too many can compete with this colorful beauty! Also the sawtooth margins alone make it stand out compared to any other flytrap!
And as usual the shipping details to ensue the safety & well being of the plants is still the best Ive ever seen bar none. Not to mention these are the healthiest & well taken care of plants Ive seen as well. Ive already made my next order on a kms, cant wait!

These are just impressively colorful plants. Nice size traps, and very aggressive growers. With my limited experience, these have been the least affected by re-potting after shipping. Got the "Five small plants" option, and as is typical, got a lot more. Thanks Matt and Leah!!

The name of this plant says it all.
I got this on a whim and I am not disappointed. A good grower with great color and sawtooth margins. Anyone who likes red VFTs and is interested in the sawtooth variety should not pass this up.

Gorgeous plant!
I love red Venus Flytraps, and this one is stunning. I couldn't have asked for a handsomer one. Of all the nurseries I've bought from, the FTS sells the healthiest carnivorous plants I've ever seen. My only complaint is, I don't have enough room for all the FTS bug munchers I want to adopt.

Beautiful Plant.
Absolutely great plant. Was shipped within a day and arrived only two days later. Great service here at FTS. The plant arrived in great condition, already sprouting new traps to go along with the 1.5'' traps already up. Highly recommend the Crimson Sawtooth, it's beautiful.

First or all, i would like to say that I am EXTREMELY satisfied and impressed with FTS's service and products. Thank you! These traps came from the west to east coast in 3 days, and were packaged with extreme care. Not a single plat was even slightly damaged. Plus, i ordered 5 plants, and 7 were shipped! Even being young and just out of dormancy, these little guys already show beautiful red colors. A must have flytrap! Thanks to The Fly Trap Store's great staff for your wonderful product!

Another good red VFT to add to your collection
I was looking for another red Venus Flytrap cultivar and I decided on this one - it's similar to the Red Piranha, but the cilia (teeth) are more saw-like and irregular. Like the Red Piranha, I've only had mine for a bit over a year and it's already produced some small plantlets growing off the rhizome. As far as I can tell, this cultivar is similar to the Bohemian Garnet, but the FTS Crimson Sawtooth grows a bit larger.

(added by Steve, Flytrap Store management)
Our packing and shipping methods have been carefully designed and chosen to minimize shock and deterioration of the live plants during shipment. We cannot however ensure that they are attended to promptly and correctly once they arrive. Left outside for too long, especially in a hot mailbox or in freezing weather, the plants in a package can suffer damage. In addition, the plants may be treated incorrectly and in contradiction to the included instructions once delivered. Persons who notice problems with the plants should contact us, with photos if possible, immediately. We have received no communication recently about plants with fungal growth on them, and that is very unlikely to happen under normal circumstances. If this reviewer had contacted us, we would have worked quickly toward some resolution.

An excellent FTS exclusive!
FTS Crimson Sawtooth was the first FTS VFT i bought from the store, it is a unique exclusive, the maroon color inside the trap and the lime green near the marginal spines, the sawtooth teeth. It is truly one unique FTS exclusive. The plant came in perfect conditions as always, and ready to grow under the care of an expert!

I would reccomend anyone adding this beauty to their collection of VFT's! :)

Highly recommend!
[Modified from a review I posted on ICPS]
So I picked one of these up back in... April, 2010, I think, and I just have to say how pleased I was with the fantastic communication and accomodation of the two gents that run FTS.

As to the plant, it's doing quite well; there's an abundance of traps of varying sizes; the traps and leaves are almost entirely red. A few of the newer traps have some green around the leaf edges, but overall, the plant is shockingly red. :) I'm very, very pleased with this addition. (originally posted on 9/5/10)

Power Roots!
The plant was a well established "young" plant. And honestly a very big young plant compared to other Venus Flytraps I've purchased out there. What amazed me was that the plant was shipped bare root and within a week it was already showing new growth! The roots were about twice the length of a plant this size. To anyone looking to purchase Carnivorous Plants look no further than Matt and Steve of the FlytrapStore! Quality plants with quick and safely packed delivery. Best online CP purchase i've made.

Wonderfully Stunned
The package was delivered two days after placing my order. I must say that in 30 years of growing VFT’s I have not witnessed this level of product pride. For example, the high level of detail given to the packaging of the plants was stunning. The plants arrived without a sign of stress or damage. In fact all traps were ready for action. I am looking forward to the spring and summer growing seasons to see the evolution of the trap and color. These little ones are truly ruby gems. Congratulations to FTS for a job well done.
