Greetings all. I thought I would share some really cool pictures of from my DCXL that displayed false vivapary. As the plant came out of dormancy, it started to produce a massive flower stock. As it grew, little traps started to grow from the stem. By May, the flower stock started to produce seeds, and the little traps growing on it matured. In June I decided to cut the stock (reluctantly) and separate the traps. I ended up cutting over 30 little traps from the stock, each without their own root system. I wrapped each little trap in live moss, and placed them in a germination station with the lid on. Concerned about root rot and dormancy, I decided to take them out and replant them. To by joy and surprise, each trap pulled from the stock had taken on roots of their own. I have them currently accumulating to the outside (they were under marshydro 300W indoors). The mother plant, which I was worried about, has since grown very well. Attached are the photos through the process. I am curious as to how they will look come spring. Happy Thanksgiving all!!

I get excited if I see one or two plantlets sprout on a flower stalk. Your flytrap's creation is impressive!

So I would say the only thing that I did that was "abnormal" was to use a small amount of disease x. My wife is convinced it created the monster...

I know what I’m doing to my flytraps next spring :)

Wowww, that is insanely awesome. You should post that on the photo contest thread. That stalk is massive lol. Looks like it should be on a cover somewhere. The pics with the sky in the background are particularly impressive.

Here is the rhizome from my DC-XL that demonstrated the false vivapary. Truly impressive.

Once I snipped them and replanted them (and they took root) they started to eat.
