    "B52" and "Big Mouth" . . .

    Here are a couple shots of plants with larger Summer leaves, including a "B52" clone which produces exclusively ground-hugging leaves year-round and enormous traps; and the "Big Mouth" is a plant that I have had for years, which ate flies with gusto through my college days, and has seen its share of punishment (it was once frozen solid). I had wished to post a shot of it earlier, but virtually every trap had caught something that week . . .

    Thanks . . .

    Some "B52" clones I have don't get quite as red and even possess different growing characteristics -- upright through the Summer months, versus others which remain close to the ground. Part of the explanation are that there are a few clones of different Henning von Schmeling "B52" plants. The cultivar was not limited to a single source.

    Here is another plant with more "typical" coloration:

    Perhaps you simply have a pale clone. As I had mentioned earlier, I have several plants which routinely exhibit varying growing characteristics; and I certainly have no doubt as to their origins, since a few were divisions of von Schmeling's plants . . .

    Try it in dappled shade aka bright light and see if it reddens up
    Every seed that you plant ,doesn't sprout.
    Every seed that sprouts, doesn't make it to maturity.
    Every cutting that you stick doesn't grow roots.
    Every cutting that roots doesn't grow to a small plant.
    Every small plant doesn't reach maturity.


    Who needs speelcheck?
