Alien can get quite large. I need to take and post some photos of my mother plant before it goes dormant and loses its biggest traps. I was very surprised at the size of the traps on it this year. I didn't measure, but I'd guess them to be 2 inches long, perhaps a bit longer...

I can wait to see 2" traps on mine! That would be insane!

It is insane! Every time I look at the mature plant, I giggle a bit. So funny looking! The traps look like hot dog buns for Vienna sausages :)

OK, OK...I'll go snap a couple. It's raining here today, so the lighting won't be the best, but I'll do what I can :)
