Those are awesome! I'd seen them on European web sites -- great to see someone growing them in the U.S.

Am I seeing that right, that the fuzzy pom-pom is on what would be the outside of the trap? Or are they on what would be the inside of the trap? Or is it such a mutant that our primitive concepts of normal inside/outside flytrap anatomy do not even apply?

That's what I see as well. Looks like the fuzziness happens on what would be the outside of the trap.

I've wondered the same thing. One the fuzzy traps, it does seem like they are making something entirely structurally different than a normal trap, so perhaps the idea, as we know it, of normal inside/outside flytrap anatomy does not even apply.

It was on my for 6 years! I'm so glad to finally get one and hopefully get it propagated to share with anyone who might want to grow this curious and interesting and unique flytrap!

A few photos that I took today (April 30, 2022). I still very much enjoy growing this freaky little flytrap even though it isn't the most stable cultivar. It tends to revert to a typical looking flytrap after growing a couple of years but it seems like the smaller divisions do make the pom pom traps fairly reliably. And, for whatever reason, it seems to be more stable for me in our Missouri climate than it was in Oregon.
