    Hmmmm, this is the kind of question that really needs photographic evidence! Ok people be honest now!
    I have a nice extremely vigorous form wich I selected myself. If I feed every trap with maggots during early summer it goes through a growth burst and produces very large colourfull traps wich have reached 3 inches across.

    You can get maggots from any garbage can. :biggrin: :cheesy: But seriously get them from a local baitstore. The people there may call them "spikes" as they are a very fat variety and look like fat stout white spikes. But three inches isn't uncommon as it is an unusual size but it is true! But maggots wouldn't surprize me as being benifical to VFT'S. As they eat all rotten food which in turn is put into thier body's and that is nurtritous and they are also full of protien so I may try that as I would like that very much!

    3 inches! WOW!
    Richard, which cultivar is that?
    Are you growing 'Big Mouth'? I would love to attempt to grow a giant vft.
    Instead of maggots, would a small mealworm work?

    Woah people....down!!
    The plant is a very large and vigorous grwing form but it only produces about 1 large trap after feeding it. The rest of the traps are usually about 1 1/2 to 2 inches.

    I've got a photo of a South West Giant - the traps look to be about 1.5 inches long on the ruler that's against it. I would post a pic but the website I tried where they store your picture wouldn't work.
    If anyone wants me to send it to them, e-mail me at alexis@clubjordan.co.uk
