Thanks Matt! I'll definitely keep that in mind.

The cold winds from the North seem to be stalling growth and causing some old growth to die back. Good, more room for new growth later on. No flower stalks yet. The big Wally pot was left out overnight and caught some frost. Wally is another flytrap that I notice does all right in the chilly weather.

Wishing that everyone, along with their loved ones are healthy and doing well right now.
I know I'm looking forward to having some beautiful Spring days to do some fly trapping.

I've decided to let the Wally pot go to flower for the first time instead of cutting the stalks. I'm genuinely excited to see what the offspring will be like. As usual, the leaf hopper nymphs showed up on cue and were quickly evicted within a week by giving them a daily spraying of Captain Jack's (Spinosad.)

Do you have other flytraps that might cross-pollinate? Or will this be pure Wally?

Hopefully they keep lots of those Wally genes!

That's a really good question... Yes, I do have some typicals beside them and some Low Giants as well. The buds are still closed so there is still time to separate them or put flower socks on them to prevent cross pollination. Just a side note, Wally (or any other cultivar) crossed with itself does not give you more Wally's. Every one of the offspring will be a seed grown individual that is unique. Most will fall in the typical category, some may be special enough to become a new named cultivar. It would be cool to create an inbred line of VFT's. As far as I know, there are no flytrap "strains" so it would be a milestone to create the first line, though it would be a long-term project. All of the Bug Biting Plants death cube typicals have very similar features and the same phenotypes consistently have popped up in the seeds from them I've sent to other people who have grown them. Another thing that would be an interesting project would be to back cross a Wally to a Bigmouth (Wally's mother) and then cube it. Flytrap breeding is in its infancy and will definitely be a more talked about topic in the future.
