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.)

Drosera 'Marston Dragon'
Hybrid cultivar of the fork-leafed sundew

This cultivar is a hybrid between Drosera binata var. multifida f. extrema and Drosera binata var. dichotoma 'Giant'. It was created by Adrian Slack in 1986, and was named because its long, forked, dew-covered leaves resemble the taloned claws of mythical dragons. Depending on light levels, its leaves can range from green to maroon, with each leaf covered with red, stalked glands.

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.
