Cheerleader

Recommended Posts

I received a few small divisions of Dionaea 'Cheerleader' from David Conner in a trade this spring. They have finally settled in and appear to be growing happily. I have to admit that I get a big laugh out of this plant's unique traps! This plant has also circulated under the name "Pom Pom" and "Hedgehog". I have heard of this plant since I started the hobby many years ago, but I didn't know of anyone who actually grew one. I thought that I'd never get one of these and am extremely grateful to David Conner for sending me some!

Something else I've noted about the plant: it seems to be missing pigmentation from time to time in its leaves and traps. The missing pigmentation doesn't seems completely random. Very interesting!

I think that the missing pigmentation feature is very cool, but I absolutely love the little "Pom Pom" traps! So awesome!!!

It stable trust me David wouldn't have registered it if it wasn't and the Pom Pom trap form on young plants and only in the spring for adult plant every season which I think is nice cause it not a slow or weak grower like other clone that produce trap that can't catch prey.
