    These are the some of the largest my plants have produced so far. Is this average size, large, small, or what? How much larger can I expect?

    I say average, because they aren't small or large.

    I think 'big' starts after 1.25"-1.5" across.

    I'd have to agree with Helz and everyone else. They can vary from plant to plant, but usually 1.25" and up would be large. from about 1/2" to about an 1.24" would be medium and anything under 1/2" is small. This is more of an estimate though... flytraps are very variable.

    Here is what I go by-
    .5" and under- small traps
    .75" - average
    1"- large
    1.25+"- Giants


    HellzDungeon, do your vft's really make 1.75" traps? If so, do you have any pics of that plant? That's a pretty big trap!
    I'm counting on my Pete's Giant to make the 1.75" the traps this season!

    Wow...1.25 thats impressive! I hope my plants have the capacity to produce such traps(should get better in summer right?)

    Just measured the traps and the big oens I mentioned are a little over 2 cm
