    How long does it take to get them to the size in the last pics from the beginning?

    Anywhere from 2-4 months.

    The pullings/cuttings were put in water about 8-10 weeks ago. I removed and potted them 10 days ago.

    Their growth rate depends primarily on the age of the parent plant, light intensity, and genetics (some flytraps are fast growers, while others are slower growers)...and some luck thrown into the mix.

    'B52' and "FTS Maroon Monster" are both known to be vigorous growers. A pulling from a "Big Vigorous" would be around that size by now as well, had I taken one.

    Larger pullings tend to allow for faster growth as well - you'll notice the large B52 pulling made a larger plantlet, while the B52 nub-of-a-pulling made a much smaller plantlet. Both of those pullings came off the same B52 plant.

    That is really cool! It is always amazing to see a brand new plant growing from a single leaf. What would happen if you left the plant underwater? Could it be grown submerged?

    For a few months, yes, but not indefinitely.

    Flytrap roots aren't built for aquatic environments, so they can't sustain the plant long-term in such an environment.

    If grown in nothing but water, they'll grow for a few months, then eventually go into decline and die - most likely before the end of the first growing season.

    Nicely done and good photos too! You illustrate how much fun it is to propagate flytraps.
