    Summer traps . . .

    The first sizable Summer traps on my Dionaea have begun to appear in the last couple of weeks; and it is the more obscure Dirk Ventham's Giant (G14) which is taking the current lead at 4.9 cm (1.95"). Other cultivars reach their largest by the Fall . . .

    Dionaea muscipula cv. "Dirk Ventham's Giant"
    (aka "G14")

    Very, very nice! My plants are finally starting to put out their larger traps too. I think B52 is still in the lead, but I don't think it's quite 1.95", though I haven't measured.

    They are, without any doubt, the simplest plant to grow successfully. Give it a good acidic mix -- straight peat or 1:1 peat and horticultural sand, plenty of direct sun or very bright grow lights, a reasonable amount of water (but not waterlogged), observe its dormancy, and you're good to go . . .

    Sure, I'll snap a couple of photos tomorrow. I let all of my B52s flower, so most of them don't look very good right now, but they're starting to put out their "post flowering traps" and those traps are pretty large.
