I'm betting this VFT will have the greatest capture ratio (insects that get trapped vs. ones that escape). The "caging" of the victim should be really quick.
Is your VFT experiencing these conditions?

Hi everyone,
here some pics of my Big Teeth Red Giant :D
It´s a 2 1/2 year old plant, really one of the most beautyful giant forms, and a fast grower.

Nope, not me. It's definitely a gorgeous plant, but to me it looks like a 'Big Mouth', so I'd likely not target it specifically for TC because it's not that unique in appearance.

Hmm, I disagree with that Matt..
The teeth of the Red Giant are thicker, much longer and there is a red line on the outside on each trap.
The petioles are much longer too, I have some Big Mouth and they look quite different if you put them next to the Big Teeth Red Giants.
By the way..what is TC ?
P.S.: Thanks for the comments, I'll upload more pics of my plants soon ;)

I agree that there are some subtle differences, but the plant in the photos looks almost exactly like the Big Mouths I have out in my greenhouse right now. They too have a red line on the outside of the traps and the petioles and traps are nearly the same size and shape. I'll try to snap a few photos tomorrow to show.

TC = Tissue Culture. Tissue culture is a way to quickly propagate plants.

I look forward to seeing more photos of your plants. The one in the photo is definitely gorgeous and well cared for :)

To my eye, the plant in the photos looks very similar to the plants in your photos here BRIO:

Thanks tejan! I have a ton of them out there that I let set seed this spring, so they're just now starting to look pretty good (seeding takes a lot out of them). I've been meaning to create a product listing for them and add them to the store, but I've been so busy lately I just haven't found the time to do it.

Ya man i bet, you must have your hands full. Do you mean your going to sale the actual plants in the photos? if so there are going to be some really happy big mouth owners.
