    Well this isn't trap size or anything, but I have a double trap forming on my VFT.

    That photo of the vft trap looks like its topping out at 1.75 inches, or is that a metric ruler he's using?
    I believe Richard had one that was 3 inches

    It had to be Audrey 2's traps in the movie Little Shop of Horrors
    Lol, no just joking but my plant once had a 1.5 inch trap. It once caught a moth and was dying so I cut off the trap.
