    I am not impressed. With a name like Goliath, it should have been able to contain that prey item....

    Goliath already lost to David, a small boy. What's more...my toddler is a girl. The plant was lucky not to be squished/strangled/stomped by her.

    It is a pity that it is the only Goliath I have at the moment or I could have been able to get species seeds. So far, I've crossed this with B. guehoi. Hopefully the hybrid seeds will be viable and the offspring can be both vey tall and heavily branching at a early stage.

    B. guehoi plants - what is left of them after taking about 50 cuttings of 4" long


    B. "Goliath" - hitting 110cm in height and branching


    Close-up of B. "Goliath" growing tips




    Interestingly, the stem changed from a regular cylinder to a flat cylinder! :blink:

    From one angle...


    and from another angle.
