You are one of only a very few people who grow this clone so take good care of it!! This is the original plant that Bob Hanrahan selected to name when he was running World Insectivorous Plants (WIP) via mail order many years ago. He sent Steve Doonan a division of this plant and Steve grew it out and sent me some divisions back in 2010 or so. I've not made a point of propagating it yet but will do so this year. It's a nice giant flytrap!

This is another plant, like FTS Incredible Red Hulk, that very, very few people grow at the moment. I've been impressed with this one over the years. There's nothing incredibly remarkable about it but it is a nice giant flytrap and I think its historical significance (it was the first named flytrap selected by Bob Hanrahan of World Insectivorous Plants) means it deserves to be preserved in cultivation.

This is unexpected but it looks very nice imo. The trap shape is good and the cilia is long too!
