I've finally decided on which cultivars to put in a big pot and re-potted earlier tonight. I'm using 3 gallon plastic pots from Home Depot. The pots uses a lot of media which is why I had to be extremely picky which ones I put in the big pots. If money and space were no objects though, I would have all of them in big pots!
I ultimately chose the Big Mouth and Jaws. Throughout the past few years, I have been researching which cultivars I like the most to justify the big pots. I've looked at plenty of photos of mature pots and also read comments from experienced growers about their experiences of different cultivars and their general descriptions. Of course, I have also closely observed the plants that are in my actual care.
My criteria for choosing are vigorous growth, color, consistency of the cultivar's description, and large traps (it didn't have to be the largest but nothing that are generally considered small). I also want somewhat normal looking traps, so no Wacky Traps, Werewolf Spawn, etc. The most "abnormal" looking cultivar that I'm willing to consider is the Alien. Unfortunately, I don't currently have an adult Alien. I also don't see very many photos of it filling a big pot or how it looks like in a big clump.
I specifically picked 2 to represent a cultivar with a more upright growth and another that is low to the ground.
For the low growers, it came down to Low Giant, SD Kronos, Purple Ambush, and Big Mouth. I didn't pick SD Kronos because all of the photos that I saw of mature plants seem to have very long teeth, which I'm not exactly fond of. Between the Low Giant and Big Mouth, I just preferred the overall look of a mature pot of Big Mouth. The Big Mouth also seem to color more readily than the Low Giant. Finally, the Purple Ambush and the Big Mouth has very similar growth patterns in my growing conditions. I picked Big Mouth because it has been so much more vigorous and has bigger traps than the Purple Ambush. I bought the Big Mouth last spring as a young plant and it's already a bigger plant than my Purple Ambush that I acquired in 2016.
As for the upright growers, I chose between the G16, DC XL, Jaws, Trev's Dracula, and Royal Red. I didn't really like the unkempt look of the DC XL and G16 which quickly ruled them out. Trev's Dracula has been a complicated pick. The description from Trev says the cultivar stays low to the ground all year round with only a few upright traps. Well, I've had the plant for 3 seasons now and that has not been my experience with it at all. Trev's Dracula for me has always been more of an upright grower. My plant still looks fantastic though and it has big traps but I just prefer the cultivar be more consistent with the description across a wider range of conditions. Otherwise, I'll never be sure just how the plant is supposed to look like. I've also never seen it color like the photos that Trev posted. Maybe my conditions are too warm. It would have been an easy pick if my plant looked like the photos from Trev. Moving on, the Royal Red is my favorite red cultivar but I didn't pick it because the Jaws is so much more vigorous in comparison. I just love the overall look of a mature pot of Jaws. I might still put the Royal Red in a big pot later on though.
The Jaws pot consists of my main plant that was in a 5" x 5" x 7" along with 7 smaller division pots that I took earlier this year all put into one big pot. The Big Mouth has my main plant along with 2 division pots. I tried not to disturb the LFSM around the rhizomes. I just put them in the bigger pots and added more LFSM around the extra spaces.
These are of course my opinions and my experiences with the different cultivars in my growing conditions. Liking a plant is highly subjective! I mean no offense if you don't agree with my choices or if you think my picks are ugly!
