    I saw VFTs with traps at least 3 inches long at the North Carolina Botanicla Garden's bog garden.

    Naw..the biggest one is a 2 inch trap from Mike king. Mike if you read this do post a pic for us if you can.

    Nick, I also have a bigmouth, to make sure it's real, do you notice any different colour in the traps? It produces intense purple traps, mines is only light purple at the moment.

    3 inch trap would be huge! My biggest trap is about an inch...most of them are smaller.

Nice flytraps Nick! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Mine aren't all that impressive, but then again I've only had them for about 2 years. The biggest traps I've had are about 3/4"-1".

    Just to let everyone know, the photos I posted above are not of my Big Mouth. My Big Mouth is just coming out of dormancy as it was an import from Australia. I did not import the plant either as someone else had already done the importing.

    Careful where you crawl, it might be a trap!

    I have a "Red Rosette Giant x Burgundy Trap Giant Upright" VFT with traps approaching 2 inches long. I got the plant last summer from Phil Faulisi. I am hoping for really monster sized traps for our NECPS CP show in October - Halloween & CPs how cool will that be!!

    The plant is sooooo awesome cause I can feed it wasps and the traps don't rot from too large a meal.

    When I get some film I will take some pictures. Maybe I can carefully place a Quarter in it for scale too.

    Here is one of mine...don't know if it is a particular cultivar as the CPs at my local greenhouse are never specifically labeled. But its got some dang big traps! There's a 50-cent piece for reference.
