    BZ40 aka FTS Tall Giant (tentative name)

    Tentatively named FTS Tall Giant, this is a monster of a flytrap with large traps, long teeth (cilia) and extremely long leaves. Very dangerous looking!

    This is originally a seedling from Bob Ziemer's seed harvest that I got in 2009 and put in tissue culture, hence the BZ40 (it was the 40th seedling I deflasked). I had it in tissue culture again early last year, but took it out because I wasn't sure of its size or impressiveness. But last spring it impressed me with its large traps and long leaves and again this spring it is very impressive; probably the best looking flytrap in the greenhouses right now.

    Suggested names are welcome!

    "Ankle Biter"
    "Bird Watcher"

    I could do this all day..
    Would love to grow one if they ever get into circulation.

    I like Mass's proposed name "Jack's Beanstalk." It just seems like a perfect fit to me.

    Thanks for all of the name suggestions! Tons of great ones here

    I guess I should get it back in tissue culture...seems like people would enjoy growing this plant.

    For sure! We all know how big of a hit B52 is.
    Size matters..
    I'd love to have one, and I'm not even a VFT fan.
