Wow! It's grown so much! How big are its traps? What about the other seedlings?

I hope you recover quickly unless you already did so... where did you move to?

The largest trap on this plant is currently 0.66inch=1.7cm. I did not bring other plants because it is not easy to take a plant to another country.
I now live in Pennsylvania, US. Before, I was living in South Korea. I heard it takes 1.5 years to recover from an ACL replacement.

Sorry to hear about the knee problem, luxiloid.

But that little seedling looks great! I hope that it makes it to adulthood and perhaps gets propagated enough to distribute to other growers!

Thank you, Matt.
It has started propagating. I am little bit more confident that I can make this plant survive to adulthood since I have one more.

Here is photo from another angle. The new trap seems to be larger than the previous biggest trap.

That's a very good looking plant, if you propagated it, I'd love to get one

Yes, it is or even more.
Considering that all other siblings are also A2 x DC XL, it might be something very extraordinary.
I can't wait for it to become matured.

We cannot wait for it to mature too, so you must let us see it regularly! I expect a lot from it you know? :lol:

Guess what.
I fed this flytrap for the first time. For your reference, I am growing this plant indoors using LED light so it cannot eat any insects at all if not fed intentionally.
I found a perfect sized live spider in my basement. I hit it once so that it can't run very fast anymore then used tweezers to pick it up and fed the traps. The trap closed so fast.
Wish I videoed the feeding process. Maybe next time.

The trap that just swallowed the spider is now zip-locked.
The largest trap on this plant is currently exactly 3/4 of an inch or 1.95cm. If you have noticed, the traps are also some what broad than average flytraps.
