I started a lot of cultures from flower stalks I was able to harvest in early to mid June. I was fortunate enough to get many of them to take and I now have quite a few different varieties going in cultures.
I posted an initial thread on the Red Piranha here:
Red Piranha and Cupped Trap cultuers
I posted an update of these cultures in the forum just about two weeks ago: Various Venus flytrap tissue cultures
but their growth since then is already fairly noticeable.
I just wanted to post an update of these cultures to give people an idea of how fast they can grow.
Red Piranha (for some reason this one isn't progressing as quickly):
Petite Dragon (check out the bizzare flowering that's taking place on that piece of tissue that used to be a flower bud):
