    CO flytraps

    Hello all,
    I don't have a lot of different Dionaea varieties yet, but at least a couple are doing well here. Currently I have 3 different typical clones two of them rescues from Lowes and one a cross between the two, and I also have 'Dentate Traps' and a couple young 'Akai Ryu' plants.
    Here are a couple pics, first is the larger of the two Lowes rescue clones. This one produces a lot of color inside the traps, while the second clone stays nearly completely green

    And this is the seedling. It's first year outside, and it already has traps to rival its parent, at over an inch long


    The other 2 outside plants are not quite pic worthy yet, and due to the size of the Red Dragon plants they were getting burned outside, so they'll be growing out in the greenhouse indoors until they're big enough to weather CO sun.

    Im also considering growing flytraps outdoors. Besides the sun, do they grow well outside for you?

    Not sure what you mean by "besides the sun," since full sun is why they do so well. And yes, they manage to flower and set seed every year without getting set back much.

    Sorry, i meant to say besides getting burned. I hope to one day create a bog garden with a good amount of vfts and
    Possibly some pitchers, but wasnt sure how well they would do in CO.

    All my Sarracenia grow outside with the flytraps once they're big enough.

    Update pics! Some of the flytraps are looking more presentable now, especially the 'Dentate Traps'

    Clone C has been producing a steady supply of large traps

    Clone B is still behind though, as it usually is.

    Clone A, meanwhile, is full of growth

    This year was not very good for flytraps. Long winter and a cold, wet spring meant rot got to everything. Luckily, all my major clones are still here.
