    Agreed - not as robust or vigorous as other clones. Translation: rarely gets particularly large, nor especially full of traps like some, and it will likely take its sweet time getting to a good size. At least its not as slow and demure as 'Pink Venus' - a very pretty reddish-purplish clone, which also tends to stay small and takes a long time building to a good size.

    Thanks so much for the input guys. Now I feel kind of lucky that I received such a large specimen (bigger than the rest in dia., second in trap-size). Hopefully I'll have no problems with dormancy, as I'm not leaving them out out.

    Here's mine...photo taken last December. Grown under T5s in lowland conditions. Just yesterday, the plants got out of 3 months+ of fridge dormancy.

    Cindy, it is just incredible that you can get such beastly fly traps in your part of the world. Just goes to show the fridge method really works.
