    Wow. That is a LOT! There must be at least six individual plants in there. Have you unpotted/repotted and/or counted yet? Was there a dome on it when you bought it?

    I thought I got off lucky… Congrats!

    I also bought a Nep a few years ago that had three total plants growing in the pot. Those same three plants are now monsters, in a 4 inch pot together, pumping out 7 inch pitchers.

    Who would have thought?

    Yeah, under a dome. I took the photos today. When I brought it home I thought I'd just crack the dome open a bit - it was snapped on really tight - POP! - like one of those party favors - flytrap leaves hanging out all over the place. There was no way to put it back on even part way and too much overhang to put in a plastic bag. There were maybe eight pots - two others like this one - one may have had more plants in it - I compromised between healthy looking and number.

    I went back a couple days later but couldn't find a single VFT. I thought they sold out but I found where they moved them to last week - the other mega pots sold out and what was left were half dead
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    I guess the demand for Cp's is going up. Which is good news for us growers. That means availability should go up.

    WOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW (At Not a Number's venus fly trap pot)

    Yeah, i guess since the plants are created via tissue culture en masse, many of the ones we see at Walmart/Lowes have the tendency to have a myriad of offshoots.

    I've gotten several ones from Walmart with well over 10 rhizomes.
