    My biggest one has 21 traps at the moment, with 3 growth points, but it's very old. 6-12 traps is probably the average.

    It's just the type and intensity of light they are getting, I've seen lots of purple ones, mostly in Cali. I thought this thread was about biggest traps, I have some green dragons breaking 2 inches and still growing. The "teeth" are 3/4 of an inch long at least!

    A Green Dragon with 2" traps? I'd like to see that! My rhizomes are only just getting their act together.

    Many people have claimed to have witnessed 3" traps. This sounds incredible, but enough people have mentioned this that I don't doubt a vft of this size exists

    I've seen one of the giants before, those have awesome large traps, I was just kinda shocked that my greendragon took off like that. the previous generation of traps as I call them, are not even a full inch, the new ones coming out are just getting enormous! It's really cool. I'm tellin you guys, go buy your plants small crickets from the pet store and feed every open trap.
