    Fly Nightmare - VFT with 11 Flowers

    I thought some of you folks would enjoy seeing this. For those of you counting, some of the flowers are obscured, so you have to count the stalks. It's in a 10 inch pot.

    Several years ago I got a small plant from Philcula and it's done really well as you can see. It's Phil's own cross, "Red Rosette Giant" x "Burgundy Trap Giant Upright"

    Phil has some of the most awesome plants in existence. I have a lot of flytraps from him (I tend to collect his throw-aways lol) and they always seem to be among the healthiest and largest in my collection.

    Beautiful and very healthy plant you got there Bill.. you have done a fantastic job with it. Keep up the good work.

    Cheers

    Hey Ridetsu -

    I hope your VFT dream comes true.

    One of the main things I've found is using a deep pot. The roots of some the VFT bulbs are 5 to 6 inches long and appreciate the room. Also I noticed that they grow a bit faster and multiply easier when there is chopped up Long Fiber Sphagnum in the sand/peat mix.

    I'm in Zone 5, Connecticut. This plant gets an outdoor dormancy from November to around March buried beneath pine needles, burlap, and a foot or so of mulch, pineboughs and eventually snow.
