    I know that I have CP's that are theat big, but the biggest a Venus flytrap (dionaea) can get is about 2 inches per trap

    No I'm saying that the plant in your avatar is called a venus flytrap, and the the one in a video is called a pitcher plant. We don't really call pitcher plants flytraps. Because when you say flytrap i get the idea thet you mean venus flytrap.

    Because you kept calling the pitcher plant a fly trap which it is, but its better if you call it a pitcher plant, then we'll kknow which one you're talking about.

    LOL

    But seriously, arguments could easily be avoided if everyone used proper scientific names. Common names, aside from "vft," because there is only one "vft," can apply to multiple plants, sometimes of a completely different genus or family.

    Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?

    Agreed, Dart. Flytrap is extremely too general. Also, since it's in the name "Venus FLYTRAP," I would think that you're talking about VFTs. Since you said, "There are fly traps that are wider than your hand," it sounded like you were talking about VFTs, but you really meant the pitcher plant, since it's technically a fly trapper. But it's ok, you're still learning. Even if you have been exposed to CPs already. I'm not sure about you, but it blew my mind of how little I knew till I joined the forums. Not saying that you don't know anything.

    We usually refer Dionaea as VFT,
    Sarracenias (American Pitcher Pants) we refer as Sarrs,
    Nepenthes (Asian Pitcher Plants) as Neps,
    Etc. We just nickname them by their scientific name. We don't really use common names here on the forums. Just a heads up.
