    Hah, how can you look at a few pictures of a plant and determine it to be slow growing? In fact, it's really not slow growing. At least it's not slower growing than the average flytrap and perhaps slightly faster growing than the average flytrap. But they all grow kind of slow compared to many other plants, so perhaps that's what you meant

    But I do see why it's a plant that wouldn't appeal to everyone. Many people don't like the freaks and this flytrap is definitely a freak.

    Can you feed it? Looks like the leaves will fall over with a slight breeze, let alone a cricket leg...

    I took pics of the rhizome if anyone is interested:

    Yes, I have fed Korean Melody Shark meal worms, but the leaves tend to fall over when they catch anything. And sometimes they just fall over from the weight of the trap. Hah!

    I like the long petioles, and that name is fantastic.

    So I fed mine a pile of cricket eggs this morning and it works just like cuptraps, *and* the leaf didn't even fall over

    I do too Devon. And it is absolutely unlike any flytrap clone I've ever seen before. A very unique flytrap for sure.
