my 2 cents on megatraps: i let the potting media completely dry, then a few weeks later it got covered in snow (while still dormant), then as it was coming out of dormancy, it was exposed to a late frost, and since then it's been exposed to continuous damage from aphids, spider mites, and fungus gnats. it's still going strong. can't kill megatraps, though it did stall for several weeks after that horrible frost. very pleased with it.

I would guess that uk sawtooth II has 8- 12 total plants in that cup. You could seperate all the individual plants and then have 8-12 plants that could eventually look like that plant. Thats why growing flytraps ia awesome. Over time it pays for its self.

Congratulations on receiving a nice plant from Alex. UK Sawtooth is a beautiful plant. I'm sure the Werewolf Spawn is cool too. I want a werewolf Spawn too. :lol:

Do you still have a few plants to sell? Loucapates, Bohemian Garnet, Dracula, archangel, g14, Etna, Coquillage ??? typicals? They probably are the ones that don't look as good but they will recover. the polish Dracula is still nice looking.
