Couldn't say for sure but the starter plants are actually a pretty good size most of the time. Honestly I got a Schuppenstiel one time as a starter and it grew significantly and divided in a season. They do a good job and send out quality stuff

Our "starter" size plants are typically right near flowering size or just under. As @Apollyon mentioned, they will grow quickly with good care and become quite large by the end of a single growing season.

As for the 5 small plants, those are usually around starter sized plants, so near flowering size or bigger. The 25 baby flytraps are typically smaller than our "starter" sized plants.

I 100% recommend KMS, it’s hands down my favorite cultivar (even though KJU, KJII, and some GJ clones are giving it a run for its money), the petioles are so delicate, the color is absolutely beautiful and can be many different shades of red splotched on green or sometimes yellow, the cilia are beautifully fine like bristletooth, and the traps are amazingly elegant in their structure, as well as being functional. All in all it’s an amazing clone

I got the 25 babies. They were pretty tiny. Most across about the size of a nickle. The bulb (not the right word but you know what I mean) was 3/16 to 1/4 across. I'll try to get you some pictures tonight.

Not likely. We typically only offer those sorts of products during the slow time of the year. Those types of products (multiple plant products) are time-consuming and tedious to prepare and ship, so we rarely offer them during the busy season, which is from late February through October.
