dcxl cultivar in tissue culture
schuppenstiel cultivar in tissue culture
Out of the 7 Venus Fly Trap cultivars seeds we introduced to tissue culture, 2 cultivars are growing very well and exhibiting the special parental traits: DCXL and Schuppenstiel.
DCXL is very high in demand due to surpassing the B52 in claw size. The picture above shows DCXL growing in tissue culture for 3 months from seed. The DCXL plant has grow extremely vigorously, with large rhizome and very large claws. In comparison to the B52 flytrap we currently stock, DCXL grows both faster and large with much bigger claws in tissue culture.
Schuppenstiel is well known for its interesting bold crested leaf structure, leading the leaves to look like wrinkled skin. It's an extremely unique cultivar and fascinating to look at. In tissue culture, our Schuppenstiel plant is slower to develop claw size due to inputting initial energy into developing that unique crested leaf structure.
We hope to start selling these unique cultivars as maintenance free terrariums within the the next 2-3 months, so be on the lookout as we will announce it on our Facebook page!
