In the fall of 2011, Matt received some flytrap seeds from a friend in Germany. There were quite a few interesting crosses in the bunch and Microdent x Weinrot was one of them. The seeds were sterilized and sown in vitro. There were quite a few seeds from the cross that successfully germinated. Of them, there were 5 that had traits similar to the mother plant (Microdent). And this particular seedlings also had high levels of anthocyanin (red coloration), similar to the red-leafed father plant, Weinrot, a Venus fly trap variety in common distribution in Europe.
