Dionaea muscipula 'Bohemian Garnet' (D.muscipula 'Royal Red' x D.muscipula 'Sawtooth'). Ciri2: ukuran kecil (setengah kali ukuran Dionae pada umumnya), warnanya merah (seperti 'Akai Ryu'), sangat aktif membentuk anakan, bentuk trichome seperti gigi gergaji (mengikuti 'Sawtooth').
Kultivar ini sebelumnya beredar dengan nama 'Red Sawtooth', tapi sekarang sudah resmi punya nama baru 'Bohemian Garnet' (Cesky Granat), beritanya ada di CP Newsletter edisi terbaru (September 2007). Nama Bohemian Garnet diambil dari Granat, sejenis batu-batu mineral kecil yang populer di Ceko untuk dibuat perhiasan.
Dionaea muscipula ‘Bohemian Garnet’
This plant was obtained from an F2 cross between an all red clone (Dionaea ‘Royal Red’) and a more typically colored Dionaea ‘Sawtooth’ plant in 2000. It does not demonstrate any new mutation in general leaf form, but it does have new attributes which distinguish it from other, previously existing Dionaea cultivars. Establishing this plant name as a new cultivar will help keep proper order in the wide assortment of Dionaea muscipula cultivars already registered. This new cultivar differs in its growth from other Dionaea cultivars in the following ways:
All-red coloration of plants, similar to Dionaea 'Akai Ryu'.
Marginal trichomes are reduced and divided to numerous toothlets similar to Dionaea 'Sawtooth'. Note that the trichomes on Dionaea 'Red Piranha' are dentate, but not sawtooth.
Adult plants are about 4-6 cm in diameter, only about half the size of most Dionaea (including Dionaea 'Sawtooth').
Enormous proliferation. One individual is able to produce 10-30 or more offshoots during a single growth season.
I coined the cultivar name, ‘Bohemian Garnet’, on 17 November 2006. This name reflects the all-red color of plants, their small jewel-like size, and fact that they are usually seen in large number — such as several garnets are often used in a single piece of jewelry. Finally, the name also honors the Czech Republic (Bohemia), the country of origin for this cultivar. In Czech, the name can be written Dionaea ‘Ceský Granát’.
Cultivation of Dionaea ‘Bohemian Garnet’ is standard, no increased sensitivity to fungi or any other pests was observed. I recommend the continual removing of its numerous offshoots to obtain as large a plant as possible. These offshoots root well even though they are very small. Dionaea ‘Bohemian Garnet’ must be propagated vegetatively to maintain all the described characters of this unique clone. Propagation via seeds is not necessary because of extreme proliferation.
Because of horticultural trade that occurred before the registration of this cultivar name, specimens of this cultivar are already in a large number of European collections. Therefore I ask all growers who obtained their plants from my collection to change the labels of any plants called “red sawtooth” to the new established name Dionaea ‘Bohemian Garnet’. Contact me if you want me to validate the identity of your plant, if you are unsure if it is Dionaea ‘Bohemian Garnet’.
