I seek the Dionaea "Whale". Aye, I did own her once......sold her to some scurvy dawg (actually he's a nice guy......Hey, Jim!), and kept her offspring to die a slow, horrible death in the Cold of Winter. Now I seek her again.
Aye, and a "Gold Strike" would nice, too.......I have but one in the gallows, but it seems it will remain a wee lad forever, much like Gary Coleman.
If any of you Scallywags has a spare to dare to trade or sell, I will be bayside for a fortnight (maybe longer should the rum demand!)

Whale is a great plant, but I've had a tough time getting it in tissue culture. It has large traps with sawtooth cilia, but unlike Sawtooth, it stays low growing year round.

We will have quite a few Gold Strike available for sale later this year. It's similar to Red Piranha in many ways, but perhaps doesn't divide quite as much.

Good information Matt. I have never heard of gold strike? But I have some very old fly traps in a group I call them the golden girls.
