I’ve had these two for about 5 months
When i fertilized the green one for the first time it started growing vertically and the trap size doubled.

The red one took some time to thrive but it seems to be doing well now.

I repotted them yesterday, they were both in one pot but were outgrowing it. I used the same medium and they seem to like it.

Not too experienced with CP’s, got into them last year but love them all

Can I ask, is this a sawtooth and B52? The green one could be a lot of things, I just ask because I started with a sawtooth and a B52 combo years ago.

If there is no label when you bought them, then they must be labeled as typicals. They may be a sawtooth type or a giant trap type, but they are still considered typicals.

This doesn't address my question. One of the first two plants I bought was a sawtooth, the named cultivar, and that could be true for OP as well. After several years that original sawtooth had turned into dozens of plants (there are probably pictures on here from a decade ago), and I was wondering if I correctly identified the plant.

Actually it does. Unless it was sold with something specifying the parentage, it is a typical. With 20,000+ genes to potentially express, you're not going to be able to look at one and say "This is A x B". There may be similarities, but nothing definitive. If it is a cross between two cultivars, that doesn't make it an automatic cultivar (ie., Sawtooth x B52), it gives it potential to be a really cool typical.

The one you bought may be a named cultivar, but a cultivar has unique genetics. If you let it go OP, then you're introducing new genetics, and any seeds produced will grow only typicals as they will not be genetically identical to the cultivar. Now, don't get me wrong, there is a very, very, very, very, very slight chance that the genetics will be identical. But it's a one in seven trillion+ chance that that will happen via pollination, so it's virtually impossible.

Your original Sawtooth divided, vegetatively propagating new plants. This is the only way to get a cultivar from a cultivar.
