    Back in the early 90's when I was living in San Diego (actually La Mesa) I used to grow all of my CP outdoors year around on a deck. I lived there for about 6 years. Here is a picture of some flytraps I had growing on my deck. I bought these in 1990 or so and this picture was taken about 1995. There is a dime in the pot to give you an idea of the size of these babies. When I moved to Monterey, CA I couldn't take them with me so I donated most of my collection to the SDSU greenhouses and I gave this pot flytraps to a 10 year old next door neighbor with instructions on how to care for them. I often wonder what happened to them. The Capensis in the pot was a voluteer from seed.

    I think they were all typical, by the way any of you living in Southern California, there used to be a chain Nursery by the name of Nurseryland that carried a fair amount of CP. I believe that's where I bought these flytraps.

    Nurseryland is now "Armstrongs Gardens". Their headquarters is at Carlsbad. They do tend to carry very good VFTs.

    Some look to be dentate-I see some open traps with no teeth.
    Man, I wish I could set plants outside like that.

    Cheers,

    Joe
