    Here are a few photos of my D. muscipula "B52" A #1 Clone Henning.

    This is one of my favorite VFT I have seen. I received this plant from Henning 6-23-05 and it has tripled in size since then and it even flowered this spring.

    It is in a 3 1/2" pot for size reference.





    Let me know what you think.

    Well after I posted the photos my brother got mad since this is his only plant and I said it was mine lol.

    All the large traps you see in the photo are all about 35mm so really not all that big yet. I let about 50 VFTs flower this year and the "B52" flowers were at least twice as big as the next biggest so I really think it has great potential.

    Henning clamed that the traps get 2 to 3 inches but no photos.

    Dustin if you read this...
    When you were out at Henning's how big were his biggest VFTs?

    Thanks
