lol, neither is mine. I only live 40 minutes north of Anaheim. Summers are pretty hot here, difficult to get the temps down at night most of the year. But after growing villosa and rajah for about a year and hearing that hamata was easier than both, i figured I could grow it. :D Watering at night with refrigerated water seems to help. And yes it was expensive, but I figure if it survives and it gets big for me in a couple of years, it would have been worth it.

Wow, all of those are great additions Manny! I'm impressed with some of the flytrap clones you got. Many of those are very hard to come by. Congrats!

Thank you Matt, but I still have a long way to go before my flytrap list is even close to being as awesome as yours. I have noticed though, that the A2 seems to be a true larger clone and the G14 not so much. I potted them up together in the same 8 inch pot along with a southwest giant and a typical. They are all, roughly, the same age. The G14 is still only as big as the typical, the southwest giant is a little bit bigger than those, but the A2 is easily twice the size, none flowered this year.

I too have been slightly less impressed with the G14 than with some of the other "giant" clones out there. I really like the SouthWest Giant and A2. Out of curiosity, here were you able to get yours? I bought my G14 and SouthWest Giant from Phong, but he no longer sells VFTs. I was graciously given the A2 by a friend.

Well, I was messaging Bob Ziemer and asked him where I could get some flytrap cultivars. To my surprise he said that he had some of them that he could spare. So these 3 that I mentioned came from Bob. I think I thanked him like 10 times. Now im trying to get them to grow and divide so I can share them with other ppl that cant get them. Now im just concentrated on trying to get 'Bohemian Garnet' and 'Scarlet Bristle'. Some day :twisted:

Bob is one of the most generous CPers there is. No doubt about it!

I'm trying to get all of these clones (A2, G14, Petite Dragon, Spider, Bohemian Garnet, and Scarlet Bristle) established in TC so that they're available to the masses. I think that I'll be successful. I have nearly all of them "marinating" in vitro right now. They've been clean for about two weeks, which is a good sign, and they should form callus soon.

I already have Holland Red, and Southwest Giant rapidly propagating.

Hey, I just noticed that you have two Helis (heterodoxa and 'Tequila') that I don't currently grow. If you ever want to swap some Helis, keep me in mind when you get divisions.

Of course Matt, im always looking for new plants to add to my collection. Both, the heterodoxa and the 'Tequila' have 3 growing points right now. The heterodoxa is producing adult pitchers already but the plant itself is a bit on the small side so I decided not to divide it this year, next year for sure though. The 'Tequila' began to flower before I was able to divide it, so that too is out of the question. Next year I will divide it earlier before it flowers. I will keep you in mind when I divide.

Thank you, still trying to get it larger though. :twisted:

Lol, thank you. To be honest, I dont know where I keep it all either. I have a small backyard and to add to that, there is an old busted truck there and my pool takes up a lot of the room as well. I have several hundred Sarracenia and flytraps(mostly typicals) all bunched up in a 7 by 12 foot area. And all my sundews and Nepenthes are kept under my porch. Im going to see about selling some plants at my local farmers market. That way my hobby can support itself :mrgreen: .

I appreciate that! And I realized that I actually do have an H. heterodoxa (must have been tired when I wrote that post because I didn't think about it at the time), so a swap for a division of just the H. tequila would be great.
