    First Dionaea m. 'B52'

    Being somewhat new to CPs, I'm now a proud owner of the first of many Dionaea m. cultivars, the awesome 'B52'! Grown under LED lighting and showing the plant's vigorous growth and color. I especially like how the leaves keep getting shorter and traps bigger

    Few weeks after arrival


    More compact growth

    Looks like it was a bit etiolated when you got it. It seems to have adjusted nicely since. I would try working the plant outside slowly. VFTs do their best outdoors in the sunlight. Just remember to do it slowly, the sun is a lot stronger than our indoor lights and can burn all of a plant's existing growth. Or you could do what I do and just toss it out, let the sun burn the leaves and then wait for new ones to come up from the rhizome.

    Took these today. Went from one plant since 2015 to what seems like 6-8. Was honestly too lazy this year during repotting to part them out separately so into a 5" pot they went.
