Prize winning plant
I ordered an FTS Maroon Monster about 2 years ago.
This year (2015) it won 2nd place in the carnivorous plant division in the NC State Fair! Nice big traps and fast growth rate. I'd attach a pic if I could but can't see how to.
Anyways, nice fast growth rate and great color.
Please note that it needs more than the 4-5 hours of direct sun that I give it to become all red. Mine are deep red inside the trap with light red along the petiole center and green elsewhere. It would likely grow even better if I could give it more sun.
This is my favorite cultivar to date.
Buy it, or regret the fact that you didnt. Easy decision.
some 3 years later and this is still my favorite red clone. fastest growing and largest traps I have seen on a red plant so far. Great for seed crossing.
I received my plant today and i loved it! The red color makes the traps looks beautiful and large! They look just as if they hadn't been dormant when they actually are!
Blows away the Akai Ryu!
The young plant I received was bigger than the large adults sold by most other vendors. The deep red coloring on the FTS Maroon Monster is just amazing. It's hands down the best red variation flytrap out there in my humble opinion both in terms of color and size. Shipping was fast, packaging was secure, and you could tell that these plants were grown by people who know what they are doing. The handwritten personalized note of thanks on my order form was classy too. Thanks again Matt & Leah! :)
By this point I should just say "ditto". This is a wonderful plant!
Very similar to Akai Ryu but with a less lanky growth habit and much more vigorous growth. Color, trap size, and growth rate are all exactly what you would want in a VFT. It's hard to find a more universally beautiful plant.
Incredible Maroon Color!
By far, this is my favorite venus flytrap! I ordered a young adult- potted, and received a well grown and thriving plant. Monster traps and excellent deep maroon color make this a must have. I suggest you pick one up when available. THANK YOU FLYTRAP STORE! A+
I have just received my maroon monster today and shipping was quick, i look inside and i am just amazed on how red and big the traps are, i plan on ordering more in the future. Thanks for the good quality plants, thank you Flytrap Store
I'm not a stranger to live plant orders. These bare root plants were perfectly wrapped in wet packaging material (4days transit) . My maroon monsters were huge (much larger then I was expecting). For someone in the field of horticulture, I greatly appreciate the sense I get for growers who really love their plants, and it shows. Thanks Matt and Leah.
When I rec'd plant it was big enough I split it into 3 plants,I planted in 14'' pot with other flytraps, they began to turn a little green so I put them in full sun,they turned dark red and grew so much over the summer they covered half of the pot. I decided to repot plants since they are just starting to go dormant and I split them into 12 plants from the original 1 plant. All flytraps grew good over the hot summer in NC but none compared to the growth of this one, Do not hesitate to buy this plant.
Beautiful and Vigorous
I absolutely love the coloration of this plant! It also rebounds from shipping well and is vigorous. Real beauty!
