So I was going through my flytraps to see who needed repotting as they come out of dormancy, and I found my pot of A2 was actually bulging. I don't usually stuff that much potting media in my pots so I decided to take a look. Turns out the rhizome has gotten way big since I got the plant. This one actually has a surprising amount of weight to it! It's actually not just long, but it was pretty fat too.

I guess maybe it's more common for other people but this was the largest rhizome I've seen in my collection.

I ended dividing it up into a few pieces to propagate

Congratulations, that's a huge and happy rhizome - even the divisions look big! Looks like you use a peat perlite mix, do you use maxsea? How long did it take to grow that monster?
