    I have had my first flytrap (common cultivar) for about two months now. It has been growing traps about 0.5mm to 0.7mm since I bought it. Recently however, the two traps shot out at 1.0mm, and turned a pinkish red. And a new trap just formed about 1.5cm long! Is the plant just very healthy, or is this probably just a freak thing?

    I fed it this bast*rd caterpillar that was eating one of my Sarracenia plants, and something else that my cats were playing with a few weeks ago. I can't remember. Oh well.

    oh yeah, that should definitely be cm. Whoops. 1.5mm would probably not qualify as a "freak giant trap." :-)

    Hmm...the figures you gave are all screwy :confused:
    So on the biggest trap, is it 1.5mm or 1.5cm or 15mm or 15cm? 1.5mm is rather small, and 15cm would definately be a freak and you would have to take pictures of it to show us! Perhaps using inches would be easier for us all [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
