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 '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.

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.)

Drosera binata var. multifida f. extrema
Highly branching
cultivar of the fork-leafed sundew
The "multifida extrema" is a genetic variant of the fork-leafed sundew. Like the typical Drosera binata, it forms narrow leaves that fork and produce carnivorous, dewy leaves. What makes this form special is that it doesn't just fork once to create a "V-shaped" branch extension, but rather it forks and branches multiple times per leaf. Adult plants have leaves which are forked multiple times to form a nearly web-like leaf system.

Drosera capensis
The Cape Sundew

In addition to being one of the easiest, most forgiving sundews to grow, the Cape sundew, native to South Africa, is also one of the most visually stunning. It is one of the few species whose leaves move to wrap themselves around their prey, to bring a greater number of its digestive and trapping tentacles to bear. It is so easy to grow that in some collections it is regarded as a weed because its bountiful seeds take root extremely readily.

Nepenthes unknown hybrid A
TThis hybrid (of undetermined parentage) produces pale pink pitchers, speckled reddish-brown. Lower pitchers tend to be rounder, with a circular peristome, while upper pitchers tend to be somewhat more elongated, with a heart-shaped peristome. (I suspect that N. maxima or N. aristolochioides may be somewhere in the lineage, but it's unclear.) Vigorous growth in the summer and late spring.
