Wally took first place in the small potted plant class, and won a ribbon for best in show at the county fair!

Wally has been making a recovery since returning home. Unfortunately, someone must have found amusement in feeding him popcorn, pieces of mulch, and parts of the other plants that were on display. A week without sunlight also was stressful. Between 1/4 and 1/3 of the traps died off and had to be trimmed back.

This is a resilient cultivar and I have no doubt it will fully recover with the usual care.

That's exactly why I hesitate doing these kinds of shows with my plants.

No way people will keep their hands off them.

I was hesitant as well, but in the end I had a lot of fun and enjoyed most of the experience. People for the most part where curious and respectful. Just a few weren't.

Wow how long did it take to get like that? Does the cultivar produce many small traps or you just somehow got lucky?

I really like the pics!

Edit: nvm just saw the initial post. You've had this for 4 ish years now!
