BZ40 aka FTS Tall Giant (tentative name)

by Matt » Wed Apr 24, 2013 6:33 pm

UPDATE JULY 2nd, 2014: This plant has been officially named "FTS Towering Giant" and we are very happy to be able to offer a few of these for sale staring very soon (early July 2014).

Tentatively named FTS Tall Giant, this is a monster of a flytrap with large traps, long teeth (cilia) and extremely long leaves. Very dangerous looking!

This is originally a seedling from Bob Ziemer's seed harvest that I got in 2009 and put in tissue culture, hence the BZ40 (it was the 40th seedling I deflasked). I had it in tissue culture again early last year, but took it out because I wasn't sure of its size or impressiveness. But last spring it impressed me with its large traps and long leaves and again this spring it is very impressive; probably the best looking flytrap in the greenhouses right now. It just might be the next flytrap from FlytrapStore to be named and distributed :)

Suggested names are welcome!

Thanks for all of the name suggestions! Tons of great ones here :)

I'll have to get Leah's opinion of these and see which one she likes. I guess I should get it back in tissue culture. Seems like many people would enjoy growing this plant.

Blown away by the plant, but "Tall Giant" is such a boring name for this amazing creature that seems to be jumping out of the pot to capture it's prey.
