General Description
 
A fully grown Florida Giant dewthread is a truly impressive plant. It produces slender dewy green leaves that towers over the typical form of dewthread. By the end of the season, many leaves are dotted with carcasses.

In winter, the leaves will die back, and the plant will form a resting bud sitting at soil level. Growth will resume in mid-spring.

Excellent August 13, 2017
Reviewer: Matt from NY  
Plant arrived in wonderful shape with almost no shipping damage. My girlfriend ssid it looks like it came from the Adams Family TV show!
My Florida Giant has exploded with new spindle growth in the last month I've had it and could not be happier with it!
Out of my venus flytraps and pitcher plants thi guy seems to catch the most bugs, and does it with ease.
Remarkably satisfied with this plant.

Reviewer: Tim from College Station, Texas United States  
I received a very robust and healthy looking plant. It was packaged nicely for shipping. After a short period of adapting to my central Texas heat, the plant is sprouting new growth and doing very well.
