Dionaea muscipula
Venus Flytrap (typical)

The classic Venus Flytrap. When insects push trigger hairs on the inside surface of the leaf, the leaf closes. Its struggles repeatedly push the trigger hairs over time, causing the trap to seal shut, and for the red glands to secrete digestive enzymes as its digests and absorbs its insect meal over several days before reopening.

Dionaea muscipula 'King Henry'
Progeny clone of D. muscipula 'Big Jaws' x 'Big Jaws'

This large-trapped cultivar was a clone that was isolated from a selfed cross of D. muscipula 'Big Jaws'. One vigorous clone was isolated, selected for propagation and distributed as D. muscipula 'King Henry'. This variety grows very vigorously and produces traps that are (in my experience) at least a year in size larger than their typical counterparts. (See the first image below, to see the trap of a four-year-old plant in the cup of a hand. Please excuse the debris on the trap surface.)

Dionaea muscipula 'akai ryu'
Red Dragon Venus Flytrap
One of the first Venus Flytrap cultivars to make its way into tissue culture, the akai ryu (Japanese for "Red Dragon") is a plant that grows completely maroon under bright lighting conditions such as full sunlight. In the absence of full sun it attains a strong green hue with marginal maroon, but its full coloration can be restored over time with growth in full sun.

Nepenthes hybrid 'B'
This hybrid (of undetermined parentage) produces long, slender, patterned pitchers with a wide lids that produce abundant nectar drops on the undersides of their lids. The pitchers that this plant has produced for me have been around five inches tall, or so. (Given its slender pitchers, N. fusca or N. faizaliana may be in its lineage.) Vigorous growth in the summer and late spring. Pictures at the left are of the original source plant,
