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.

It has lots of hungry traps there. Maybe time to start feeding it?

My wife hates bugs so much. I may try fish food instead. Fish foods have the nutrients ratio most similar to that of the insects.

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.

I'm always excited whenever I see your update on the VFT :D What kind of LED lighting are you using?
