This a plant I got from the Euroflora open day. It was just labelled "Venus Fly Trap" so I call it "Massive Red Traps"!

I think that's about 46mm!

Hi,
The ruler should be in front of the plant, and transparant.
Secondly, are you realy renaming your plant as "Massive Red Traps" ?

OK I'll go back tomorrow and re-take it.

The re-name is really more of a nickname!

My biggest one this year if from my Slack's Giant at 42mm. Not worth showing a pic unless it grows bigger than 43mm, as enry is in the lead!

My thoughts also. I have a B52 that looks to be ~42mm. I keep telling it to grow more but it's not listening. :neo: Any awards for largest across the pond? :sun_bespectacled:

My largest is a 4.1cm SWG. The trap has not even opened yet, so it may still grow a bit... :whistling:

Trev, it's a Slack's Giant.

All my Dionaeas sulked last year when I repotted them into a sand/peat mix and the roots basically burnt off. The sand must of contained minerals. I re-repotted them and they're looking better this year though.

Hi all,

Here a trap of South West Giant: it's a little black but Trev told me it was acceptable and, even, never picture of a trap measuring 5 cm had not been shown. It's done :clapping:

Posted Image

I didn't take picture before today because I had done it this summer… with a larger trap of my GC4 clone! But the trap was closed around the rule (one sees the other lobe against the light) and not behind: rejected picture. The trap is dry now, which reduces the size… :clapping:
As you can see it, the trap measured 5.15 cm!

Posted Image

Other pictures at my growlist.

It was just my first post :D

Bye
JeanPhi

Holy cow! Those are some enormous traps! I thought mine were big, but they pale in comparison to these!

Yes, congratulations Jean Philippe.

I'm not sure I can get over falling at the last fence. It may take weeks, months or even years, but I'll be back.

Thanks for the competition Trev.
