    Alexis, that is tru, but I try to treat my plants as though they were wild, i know that it will never happen, but I personally try to get a close as I possibly can

    Over all, it depends on the grower I guess...

    No problem with that at all.

    Strangely, plants that grow in cultvation often look far better than those in the wild! More pitchers and traps over a season, whereas those in the field often look a bit tatty with less growth. The only downside is that plants in cultivation are more likely to succumb to fungus infection and die inexplicably.

    Good god, ya think that fly trap expended a little bit of energy there? That's like a inch wide piece of pure plant... crazy.

    Looks like it's evolving into something else.

    Blimey. That's about 2 months worth of tissue surface area growth.

    I bet it didn't do much for a few weeks after that.

    Were there any follow-up pictures after that one? I would love to see the actual flower(s) on a beast like that.
