You were shocked by the rhizome in a good way or?

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! :)

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.

The professional looking nameplates are a nice touch.
