"[Dionaea ' A2 ' {H.v.Schmeling}] is a sibling plant of the celebrated cultivar, [Dionaea ' B52 ' {B.Rice}], which produces some of the largest traps of all flytraps. Created and propagated by Henning von Schmeling in the early 2000s, [Dionaea ' A2 ' {H.v.Schmeling}] is one of seven seedlings resulting from the self-pollination of a Venus's flytrap cultivar that Henning nicknamed "Carolina Giant". The seven seedlings were originally named "A1", "A2", "A3", etc., in order of descending size, with "A1" being the largest plant and later renamed to [Dionaea ' B52 ' {B.Rice}] after the large American bomber aeroplane. [Dionaea ' A2 ' {H.v.Schmeling}] is a Venus's flytrap variety that is highly sought after by collectors. [Dionaea ' A2 ' {H.v.Schmeling}] is now in wide distribution in the United States after being tissue cultured in 2010 by Matt Miller and distributed through his nursery FlytrapStore.

[Dionaea muscipula ' Alien ' {G.Bily}] also produces strange teeth that are a little shorter than typical [Dionaea {Soland. ex Ellis}] and have small wings all along the tooth. Mature traps are also fused at the distal end and base lobes of traps overlap. Traps do not close well because the lobes of the traps are very heavy, reminding me of a [Heliamphora {Benth.}] pitcher, and when you try to close it with your fingers it often breaks. Each trap produces many tiny trigger hairs."

The margin of the lobes usually stay green and the lashes are often whitish.

The transitional part of the lamina between the leaf base and the lobes variably undulates. The trap lobes cannot completely close towards the leaf base, which usually allows prey to escape and digestive fluids to leak. The traps are slightly curved along the midrib and have narrow marginal lashes. [Dionaea ' Crocodile ' {M.Farina}] produces mostly decumbent leaves up to 7 cm long. The inner surfaces of the trap lobes develop deep red colouration while the exterior of the traps and the leaf base may suffuse reddish in plants growing in direct sunlight.

"[Dionaea ' Giant Clam ' {J. & M. Srba}] produces leaves up to 8 cm long that bear traps that are up to 4.8 cm in length. The marginal lashes are reduced to jagged, triangular projections along the margin of the trap lobes. The edge of the trap lobes variably undulates, particularly in adult plants during summer and early autumn. The traps of very young plants or mature specimens in autumn may lack this distinctive undulation.

"Once, I got my hands on a piece of this old friend, I grew it outdoors at home with my other flytraps and by the end of that summer it had grown remarkably large again! Now, after growing it for a few years, I have realized that it is possibly the biggest and best flytrap cultivar so far, producing traps that rival those of the now famous and mighty [Dionaea ' B52 ' {B.Rice}] (Figs. 2, 3, 4). It seems to be slightly more vigorous than [Dionaea ' B52 ' {B.Rice}] especially when grown outdoors. It can also be distinguished from that clone because the petioles tend to be longer and the interiors of the traps are very red, but often not quite as dark red as [Dionaea ' B52 ' {B.Rice}].

"As I looked at the mound of plants that resulted in just a few years from a small clump, I realized that this plant was something special. Clearly this is an extremely vigorous clone that has a bizarre obsession with freely dividing and clumping. All you need to do is apply plenty of distilled water, then sit back and watch it multiply like a gremlin. While the plant is entirely golden green, new traps may blush a very light pink when they first open in strong light. This fades away to green as they mature, but, because of this, I doubt that it is truly anthocyanin free. It can be distinguished from [Dionaea ' Justina Davis ' {B.Rice}] by the pink blush in newly opened traps and its vigorous clumping nature."

The plant starts in spring with the first set of prostrate leaves with short petioles, after flower these are followed by long petiolate mid- summer leaves, to form the last set of wider short petiolate winter leaves in late summer or autumn. The leaf rosette reaches a diameter of ca. 10 cm and individual traps may attain a size of up to ca. 3 cm. The red colouration of the leaves depends, however, strongly on light conditions. Only plants exposed to full sunlight colour more or less intensely red or red-brown. In winter the plants frequently get green leaf margins or even whole plant portions that do not receive sufficient light remain dark green. As soon as the plants are exposed to more intense sunlight, the colour begins to change to typical again."

"Growing within this batch of plants was a small individual that differed from the others by a regular fusion of only a few spines into each of its teeth. The result was that each tooth was about 2 mm wide and was flattened in cross section, in contrast with the normal capillary nature of typical [Dionaea {L.}] plants. The tips of the teeth on this peculiar plant are often are multiply divided, revealing the fused nature of the teeth. The teeth are oriented normally, unlike the distorted positioning as is often observed with [Dionaea ' Fused Tooth ' {P.D'Amato}]. (...) Another peculiarity with [Dionaea ' Louchapates ' {R.Anfraix}] is exhibited near the apex of the trap, opposite the petiole. In normal specimens of [Dionaea {L.}], this region of the leaf lobe margins lacks spines. But in [Dionaea ' Louchapates ' {R.Anfraix}], marginal teeth are present on both lobes, all the way to the midpoint of the two lobe margins. This feature is also seen in [Dionaea ' Cupped Trap ' {S.Stewart}], although that cultivar also has trap that is cupped like a spoon. After three years of cultivation, [Dionaea ' Louchapates ' {R.Anfraix}] has undergone normal dormancies and has been propagated vegetatively. The progeny are showing the same features as the parent plant. This cultivar is not a member of the [Dionaea {L.}] Dentate Traps Group since its teeth originate from a fusion of multiple marginal spines, and are not short and triangular."

Description: Carniv.Pl.Newslett.36:53 (2007)
"Since my initial introduction to [Dionaea {L.}] cultivars, I have developed a hobby of comparing cultivars under similar growing conditions, including [Dionaea ' Akai Ryu ' {R.Gagliardo}]. It soon became apparent that the plant that I received from Peter was not the true [Dionaea ' Akai Ryu ' {R.Gagliardo}]. In fact, the plant was so different that on February 9, 2006 I decided it should be given a cultivar name, and selected the name [Dionaea ' Petite Dragon ' {R.Ziemer}]. Whereas [Dionaea ' Akai Ryu ' {R.Gagliardo}] is described in Carnivorous Plant Newsletter 25(2):50 as "far superior to any of the parents in terms of growth rate and vigor," and that "growth habit and flower morphology are typical for this species," [Dionaea ' Petite Dragon ' {R.Ziemer}] remains the smallest plant (even as a 6-year-old flowering adult) of any flytrap that I have grown in 50 years. Grown outside in full sun, a mature [Dionaea ' Petite Dragon ' {R.Ziemer}] trap is typically 15 mm long, with the largest attaining 17 mm (see Figure 1). The rosette diameter of mature plants is about 6 cm and rarely exceeds 10 cm in spring. The flower scape is about 12 cm tall and always bifurcates into two flower clusters, a large and small one (see Figure 2). The flowers have a red stigma. This is the only clone of the 61 "named" clones (i.e. plants with cultivar names, or other informal grower-given appellations) that I presently grow in which the flower scape bifurcates regularly. I have selfed this plant over several years and all of the offspring grow into small adults having bifurcated flower scapes. This plant and its seed offspring are all red like [Dionaea ' Akai Ryu ' {R.Gagliardo}], and the stigma is red as in many other all-red Dionaea clones.

The unusual dark red colour intensity makes this cultivar so exceptional. Even under normal light conditions the plant attains full colouration, which reaches an optimum with increasing sunlight and temperatures. At the end of summer and under corresponding growth conditions the plant colours particularly strongly dark red (burgundy). The winter leaves appearing in autumn are short petioled and wider. Smaller traps are formed and the red colouration retreats due to enhanced chlorophyll production."

"[Dionaea ' Scarlet Bristle ' {R.Keehn}] is distinct in its attributes as the leaf blades and traps exhibit scarlet to burgundy coloration in filtered sunlight and are held prone to the surface of the growing medium in all seasons of growth. The marginal trap cilia are greatly reduced, irregular and devoid of fine hairlike tips which imparts a rough bristly appearance to the trap lobe margins. This is clearly different in structure from [Dionaea ' Red Piranha ' {E.Read}] as the triangular shaped marginal cilia are commonly uniform and evenly spaced on [Dionaea ' Red Piranha ' {E.Read}]. Another interesting characteristic of [Dionaea ' Scarlet Bristle ' {R.Keehn}] is that mature trap trichomes (trigger hairs) continue to develop a thick bristly growth on their upper portion as the traps age. Although absent in young plants this unique attribute is very apparent in older plants, is readily visible to the naked eye and can resemble anything from a spear-head shape to the bristle end of a bottle brush. This extra growth on the trichomes appears to neither impede nor enhance trap function but does make itself worthy of continued study. Unlike [Dionaea ' Bohemian Garnet ' {M.Srba}] [Dionaea ' Scarlet Bristle ' {R.Keehn}] grows equal in size to the regular form of [Dionaea muscipula {Soland. ex Ellis}] and does not produce copious numbers of offshoots after the plants have grown out of their TC vigor."

"This plant was originally selected in September 2011 because its appearance was identical to [Dionaea ' Cupped Trap ' {S.Stewart}], but with dark red traps. In the second year, the plant lost its "[Dionaea ' Cupped Trap ' {S.Stewart}] appearance" and began to develop dentate-like teeth, but the trap was clearly not typical. When the plant finally reached a mature size and flowered for the first time, its strange teeth remained very differ- ent throughout the year. The teeth range from long with alternating short and thin teeth, to short and triangular teeth like a mix- ture of sawtooth and dentate. Due to the convexity of the traps, they close very fast.

"[Dionaea ' St. Patrick's Beard ' {D.Conner}] is a tissue culture sport from a [Dionaea ' Cheerleader ' {D.Conner}]. During spring 2011, a large [Dionaea ' Cheerleader ' {D.Conner}] with traps that ranged from fuzzy to normal looking traps (Fig. 7) produced a flower stalk with normal looking flowers (Fig. 9) which was placed into tissue culture. The resulting jars of subcultured plantlets were largely neglected until early 2012, when many of the plantlets had died. The remaining live plantlets were finally deflasked and transplanted. Many of the intermediate transitioning traps had remnants of the fuzz, in the form of raised striations on the outer lobes, oriented vertically from the trap midrib to the outer margin, and a massed clump of spike-like protrusions near the base of the trap, giving the appearance of a "beard". The traps on one of these plants had an appearance somewhat resembling a strange combination of [Dionaea ' Cupped Trap ' {S.Stewart}] and [Dionaea ' Wacky Traps ' {B.Rice}]. This is the cultivar [Dionaea ' St. Patrick's Beard ' {D.Conner}] (Fig. 8).

Description: Bailey & McPherson, Dionaea:332 (2013)
"[Dionaea ' WIP Slim Snapper ' {B.Hanrahan & S.Doonan }] was selected from thousands of distinct strains which Bob cultivated, on the basis of its superior vigour, long thin leaves, and large traps. (...) [Dionaea ' WIP Slim Snapper ' {B.Hanrahan & S.Doonan }] produces upright foliage throughout the growing season. The leaves of this cultivar are up to 16 cm long and consist of elongated, narrow leaf bases that support traps that are up to 4 cm in length. The traps are lined with long, narrow marginal lashes. The leaf bases and the exterior parts of the traps are yellowish green, whereas the inner surfaces of the trap lobes suffuse light reddish when exposed to direct sunlight. In all other regards, [Dionaea ' WIP Slim Snapper ' {B.Hanrahan & S.Doonan }] is inline with wild type [Dionaea {Soland. ex Ellis}]."
Standard: Bailey & McPherson, Dionaea:332, Fig. 362 (2013)
