VERY similar. However, there were two very distinct leaves, not just one with a distinction in the pitcher top, but two leaves fused bottom to top, two distinct columns to the hood, and two distinct leaves. Bending the tops back and looking straight down from above, it was a near perfect figure 8 with the last 3/8 inches left unjoined. It was perfect, and double topped with very separate and distinct hoods, and double tubed as well.

I have tried VFTs for a looooong time... And come to find out I was not killing them... they were going dormant. HA.. (well, most the time...) Anyway- I do happen to have documentation of my last failure, right before I found this site and started my success... Go ahead, and laugh now. This photo was scanned in since i didn't have digital camera back then.
Seems to me this is turing into a "how did you fail back when" topic.. LOL
Edit: Now that I know some stuff, the main problem with this tank was light... But also, getting the "extra" water out of the bottom of the tank was harder than i had planned (that's why it was perlite)

Even though I have only officially been growing CP's for 3 years I can remember the first CP I got. IT was a venus flytrap I got when I was 6. I begged my parents at meijers for them to buy it for me and I promised them I'd take care of it. I left it ontop of my fish aquarium in a place where it got almost no light and watered it with tap water. In about a week it started to die so I had the grand idea it would be happier if I "planted" it outside. 1 day was all it took for it to be turned into extra crispy fried plant. I never touched another venus flytrap again till my senior year in highschool when I walked into meijers again and they had them there again. This time I was determined to keep it alive. So first thing I did when I got home was read every single website that had anything to do about VFTs. I kept that plant alive for a year and a half till it had an encounter with a squirrel and to this day I hate those vermin.
