    Some flytrap photos

    small 'Jaws' - 2 inch pot


    Typical - recovering from triple repotting


    Typical - huge traps (largest ~1.5 inches)


    'B52' - recently hardened-off - adjusting to the great outdoors


    another 'B52' - older plant - loving the great outdoors - largest trap ~1.25 inches




    Note: according to Hennings with B52s the really large trap production occurs in late summer through autumn

    Awesome! I love your older B52! Is that perlite in the first picture? If so, boy is it dirty!

    Your second typical's trap coloration is very similar to both my Dente's and my Typicals'. They don't seem to color up much. I guess I'll have to wait until fall.

    Very nice looking plants! I am rethinking how to cultivate them since I have had terrible luck with preventing them from being ravaged outside. What kind of lighting are you providing for them?

    They're all outdoors, about 4-6 hours of direct afternoon sunlight (west facing covered balcony). The small 'B52' hardened off in my sundew tank, about 60W of T8 fluorescent lights half growlights, half cool white- not enough for VFTs really, but okay for my South African Drosera - I need to add a couple more tubes. And then a couple weeks on a west facing windowsill.

    The big 'B52' and 'Sawtooth' was at the growers under T5 lighting - eighteen hour photoperiod - 4 x four foot tubes I'm guessing. The trap with the green margin is the first leaf to open outdoors since I got it about month ago.

    The 'B52's, 'Jaws' and 'Sawtooth' have been outdoors for about a month. The typicals have been outdoors since Feb.

    Yeah, perlite, I got the 'Jaws' from Forbes at the LACPS meeting. He grows his plants from cuttings/pullings so I don't know how long it's been in that pot. There's a hitchhiker Drosera in there too.

    I bought those typicals from Home Depot and OSH. I selected them mainly for trap size, although the first one had a lot more color in the original leaves. Next time I think I'll select for color.

    I really love these photos. Especially the B-52s and their crimson mouths.

    Boy, I really like those Sawtooths......

    I'd love to get some but I cannot find a nursery or an online vendor that has them.
