    Unhappy

    I need to know which kind of flytrap is the one that sports the biggest traps and the one that is the easiest to grow out of the common, dente, and green dragon varieties.
    thanks.

    I would definitly say the Dente, then Typical, then the Green Dragon which is a little harder to keep.

    eh? Green Dragons are usually the best looking plants I see. Typicals are totally variable. Denta are easiest to grow in lower light, but won't get a big and bright as the Green Dragons.
    There is no item greater in value than life, for without life value would cease to exist.

    I do not care for Green Dragon...maybe because I killed mine and thought it was a wimp. I like Dente and Common the best. Can not tell if they are the biggest but they do produce about 1 inch traps.

    the largest traps, in my experience, go typical, then dente, then GD.

    As for easiest, well, the they're all about the same in my book.

    Ya the red VFTs seem weaker than green VFT. However the GD is still a pretty vigorous red type as opposed to red dragons or the other red types.

    I think Green Dragons are very robust plants. Mine (from Exotic Gardens) had very large traps.

    The Red Dragon I've found to be weaker and harder to keep alive. Typicals... the traps can range in size. I have a photo on Patrick's CPGallery posted of a typical with traps as large as a 50-cent piece. (The photo has a 50-cent piece in it to show size). So even a typical can get quite large.
