This is one of the reasons why I added so many different cultivars in my collection. I can't wait till next spring to do this. Glad to see you have some potentially great looking plants!

Here is an update.
Check out the one in red circle. The largest trap is now measuring 5mm in size.

Here is another update.
The plant is just growing so fast. I look into it twice a day and it makes me so happy and excited just looking at it.
The largest trap on the biggest one has now exceeded 7mm. Now, the size difference with others is quite striking. I am sure you can distinguish it without a red circuit now.

That does look like it will grow up to be massive. But either way, all the plants in the pot look like they will be incredible.

Wow, it's already three times bigger than all the others! Can't wait to see it as a mature plant! Are you going to name it anything other than just A2xDCXL?

Thank you for your interest.
I am planning to grow it to a mature size first. When it is obviously larger than DC XL at the same condition, I can name it 2XL or XXL. :D
If it is does not get to an impressive size, I may not even give it a name.

That thing is huge, it would eat the other seedlings in one trap. Subscribing to this thread for updates :D

Hi Guys,
Sorry for keep you waiting.
I had knee surgery and then I also moved to a new country to live. I still have this plant and will continue to update.
The plant started a growth spurt around beginning of the October as if it was out of a dormancy. It put out larger traps each time.
Below is how the plant looked like on 9th October 2013.

This was how the plant looked last year 23rd October. It is strikingly larger than the others.

In December, all the A2 x DC XL plants looked red including this particular one. Maybe they were dormant. It was still putting out so many traps compared to others. It could swallow other siblings in its single trap.

After December, due to my own health issues, I could not take care of the plant well and it did not grow much. The plant was also transpotted about two times due to my relocation.
This is how the plant looks like now:

Just like the mother A2 plant, this plant well adjusts to new environment without much problem.
Hope it becomes prettier in its new home. Good news is it has started dividing. There is a very small separate growing point.
