I cannot wait to see how your plant does in the future... I got some seeds of the same cross from hollyhock, and I sowed them on 9/5/15... The cotyledons are already MASSIVE (way over half a centimeter long). Please keep us updated!
Hit that thumbs up if I helped you in any way! Have any plants you don't want? PM me!

Hello all, This is how this plant looked like in 2016 July still growing under LED indoor. It was the last time the plant looked really good. After 2016, I did not take good care of it and also did not transplant until recently. I think I could grow this plant better but without natural feeding and not going through dormancy, there was an obvious limitation. Few weeks ago, I found that the roots almost melted probably because of long time accumulation of nutrients and others. There were about five smaller divisions left in the place.
Now, guess what. I now live in North Carolina. I have moved here August 2018. During last few weeks I have been building my first special raised flytrap bed.

I first digged the ground about 15 inches deep and put the flower bed on top of it. A liner was Inserted full of 70% peat 30% perlite all the way to the top. Since the flower bed is 1 feet in height, It can store total media of about 40-50 gallons.
I carefully purchased other flytraps: B52, DC XL, SD Kronos, FTS Maroon Monster, Jaws, Bimbo. Planted them all together.

Below is how the divisions of the plant look today. I planted two of it along with other popular giants. Now, I can let them have dormancy and they will feed naturally. Also, it is a good chance to compare them in one place.
