Wacky Traps - very unique and thats why I love it!
South West Giant - nice big traps and a nice shape to it, prefer vfts with longer petioles.
Red Piranha - fab colour and great teeth
Red Fused Petioles F04 - nice colour and also unique
Petiole Denté - love the serrated edge on the petioles
Microdents - nice short teeth, again very different to all the other clones
Louchapates, Coquillage, Alien - I've yet to see the best from my plants as they're still very small but from the pictures all look very interesting
Giant Form - produced some really nice big traps this year, looks a bit of a monster amongst the others so a firm fave
Fussy Teeth - interesting new clone, curved irregular teeth
Cupped Trap - very unique, all the ones that stand a out in the crowd will always be favourites!

Red Piranha: love the colour and the teeth.
Trichterfalle aka funnel trap: I find all the ridges on the petioles makes for a very strange looking plant plus you get the funnel traps.
cupped trap: very interesting traps.
Ahh make that out of 4 I really like fused tooth also.
I'm going to stop there I could keep adding to this list there's quite a few interesting cultivars and clones for me I just cant make my mind up.

But I have to say right now my favorite plant is Wacky Traps because it's so different and crazy looking.

While we're on the subject, least favourite, Wacky Traps (horrible, nasty, pointless, but I know it has many fans so I can't be too rude about it).

I like the colour of the red dragon, and the shape and size of the B52.
Still, ALL VFT's are amazing and will never seize to be.

But I really like the look of the mature Korean Melody Shark.
I don't own one of those (yet).
Out of my own collection I like South West Giant and of course the famous B52. But I change my mind all the time. I can't really decide. Not really.

I'd love to hear Trev's favourites seeing they're his business.

It's a bit like being asked which is your favourite child... If pushed I'd probably pick Dracula, it's probably the best all round VFT of all the ones I've bred. Second I'd say SL-Seedling. Third 12 Teeth, something about it that I just love. Forth, Red Piranha. Fifth, Fused Tooth. Coquillage, Crocodile... so many I feel I've left out.

I also like the shape of cudo, shame its so frustratingly small

Out of the ones i own i would have to say my faves are
1. Big Mouth - This VFT can colour up amazingly, one of my clumps looks almost like a red form. Its vigor and clumping growth make it a great pot filler and it continues to impress me more and more with its display of colour through the season.
2. Long Red Fingers - This grows unlike my other VFTs. From strange spines on the leaves to fused traps and teeth, this plant shows a host of abnormal charteristics making it fun to watch develop.
3. G14 - This cultivar has really impressed me. Its tidy upright growth and its mid season colouring make it a real eye pleaser at this time of year.
Out the the ones i don't own.
1. Jaws Smiley (Alien?) - Not sure if these are the same cultivar but the strange arcing traps are wierdly appealing.
After reading this i'm temped to buy another B52 as my current one has never looked happy despite having the same conditions as thriving plants and having a transplant. I now think maybe it wasn't ready to come out of dormancy when i recieved it and put it under my light.
