    There is one here http://www.bestcarnivorousplants.com/dionaea....zik.jpg

    But i believe it has had a LOT of sun to get that red. Most are green, but mostly all of them have big traps, 4-5cm if they are grown correctly. They grow much faster than the standard kind too.

    Hi Dave, that is not THE south west giant Tom was asking about. It refers to an unofficially named clone that South West Carnivorous Plants offers in the UK.

    Tom, I have a picture of it and I will email you it tomoorow directly. It is a strong grower for sure, but only produces a blushes red type of trap on long petioles.

    Dave, I believe the picture you posted is the 'big mouth'.

    Whoops, the picture i posted has the name 'giant' in its web address, so i assumed it was the south west giant. Sorry. I've ordered a South West Giant and a Royal Red from 'Triffid Nurseries', i should get them the end of the week, i'm eager to see what they actually look like......

    I only ordered them last saturday. He said he had been a little busy lately making a new web-site merging Cambrian Carnivorous to Triffid Nurseries. Email him to remind him. He definately has them
