    Suggestions on a Big Trapped Plant?

    SOOOOOO.....

    I'm growing a typical VFT and a 'red pirannha', and I'm getting a few more typicals to start a bog garden with the RP and a sarr species.

    Now I want a plant or two that grows BIG TRAPS . Any suggestions on a type of VFT that fits the bill (as soon as they come available at flytrapshop.com of course, I wouldn't dream of shopping anywhere else )

    So far I've found the B52's and the 'low giants' to fit the bill. Any input? I love all of my CP's, but I have limited space and I really like the VFTs.

    'B52' and "Low Giant" are certainly the two largest trapped flytraps that are readily available in the US. Neither one would be a disappointment for you, I'm sure.

    That's a good point! Low Giants definitely color up better than B52s. But for me B52 beat Low Giant in trap size, though the difference is almost negligible.

    i think its going to come down to if he wants a plant that hugs on the ground and does not produce straight tall petioles, or just that, a plant that produces the typical seasonal leaves of Dionaea....
    thats really the only thing special about low giant other than its massive traps, it keeps very broad low petioles throughout the year

    Yep, that's pretty much what it comes down to. I think I'd get both

    I will if I get the opportunity!

    But most likely it'll be whichever one I find first at a good price
