    Come on, folks, PICTURES!!! Here's mine, which was just over 1.75 inches. This plant was originally from the PFT green dragon sale of a while ago, and regularly produces traps over an inch.:

    Not a great photo, but the largest traps on my typical VFTs are about 1.75 inches.

    Sorry for the confusion, it was in centimetres. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] If it were in inches I would have blabbed it out much earlier already. It was more likely 3cm, not 2.5. I delayed taking the pic, so the trap inevitably dried out. Well, at least I kept it as long as I could since I couldn't find anything of the size worthy of the trap eating. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Don't know why, but I think I have heard one of Tamlin's getting up to 4". No I ain't joking, I am real serious here, but it could be that I saw the wrong thing or wisunderstood the figures...could also be that I was dreaming...

    that was the story of the mad botanist-scientist that made Giant VFTs and fed mice to it!
    A lady went into a grocery store and looked into the turket section. She needed a bigger one for her family, so she asks the stock boy: \"Do these turkeys get any bigger?\"

    The stock boy replied: \"No ma'am, they're dead\"

    Don't have pics, but several of my typicals have many traps measuring 1.75". Now I noticed that for those who posted pics, the measurement seems to be at the top of the trap, where the spines start. If you measure at the bottom, you get less. I bought my plants from Dangerous Plants about five years ago. I don't expect that the traps will ever top 2", but that sure seems big to my eight year old!
    My chicken legs taste like chicken--only less meaty.
