    Coming from a decorative point of view, if that container flutes out to 10-12 inches and if the size of the plants in there are the same size as that huge lucious plant pictured I'd say 5-7. if grown all together as one big happy family from the get go in that container then i'll go one down from NeciFix and say 35

    Either way, its beautiful and i hope one day i will have something like that. I have an aiki ryu with its 3rd plant coming up, and i am excited about that. Your plant must be... what... 8 years old if not more?
    These clumps are quite common after a few months of growth, in plants that come from TC

    I believe that over-estimating ruins the whole guessing thing, so I’m going with 10 plants.

    Well...


    Our good friend from Portugal was the closest or even spot on!


    The count was... 16 (sixteen) or maybe 15 or 15 and a half. One was a tiny sliver with only two leaves and a root - it came off on it's own accord when I was misting the roots to keep them moist and didn't really match the growth on the larger rhizome it was with.

    I didn't document this step by step as it would have meant washing and drying my hands to use the camera each time.

    Here we go (see captions below):

    workbench of sorts


    what scrawny etoliated flytraps!

    10 of one kind - (yep 10, count 'em, ten!)

    half a dozen of another...


    and (taadaaah) a Pot 'o Flytraps...

    (above) ten, count 'em...


    four of the tiny ones go back into the old pot. Where'd the other two go? In the mail...
    as expected the two tiny ones (at 3 o'clock and 6 o'clock) did not survive
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    Nice job! Hopefully they’ll start to grow more healthy-looking traps before dormancy.
    Good luck with them!

    Follow up shots. Full shot of pot unfortunately did not turn out. In the small pot of four plants only one survived.
