    Does the base still produces traps out of the ground or has all growth gone upward into that trunk?

    It reminds me of a climbing tuberous dew. It grew the rosette and now all growth is up top.

    Maybe it will just keep growing and growing and growing till it's 4,976 feet tall! Nah.. might get wobbly around that 5 foot mark... Also it'd probably go to sleep before then. :P

    I really hope this is a new cultivar. I know that sometimes VFTs false vivipary, but those traps look kinda wimpy.. THESE look like full blown traps and they act like it too!

    None of the upper leaves appear to be forming roots. It's as if the apical meristem and the flower stalk fused somehow.

    It would be interesting to pull one of the upper leaves and see if it would develop roots or plantlets like a normal leaf pulling.

    I plan on attempting to pull off one of the whole plants that is growing up there and using that as the propagation material instead of a single trap.

    I didn't know VFTs had shoot apical meristems... Do they have an actual one? I know the rhizome is a modified stem, but since it's a rosette forming plant I never knew there was one.
    Speaking of plant biology... Does anyone know if stomata are found on the leafs of Dionaea (which would be the traps) Stomata are supposed to be found on the "underside" of a leaf, so if they are located on the leafs, would the be found on the inside or outside of the traps? Or would they be found only on the petiole?
