General Description
King Henry is a new cultivar. It's produces upright yellow traps. The mouths of the traps have a splash of reddish orange. It grows very vigorously and sends up multiple traps at once. We've had this variety in our collection for only a year. We've noticed that the plant produces larger than normal traps when it matures, up to 1 1/2 inches. Because of the long petioles, the leaves flop over due to the weight of the large traps. This is probably why it was called King Henry!

Looks nice! May 22, 2017
Reviewer: Benjamin Larsen from PORTLAND, OR United States  
There were many semi-dormant traps still attached and all of them looked healthy. Now that the warm sun is hitting the plant, it's getting shiny and popping traps like crazy. Yay!

king is correct April 21, 2017
Reviewer: Minh from GA USA  
I bought this great plant last year. I paid for 1 plant and got 3, one main with two tiny baby ones. It grew very well and looks very nice. It has nice long petioles with big traps, mainly greenish-yellow with a tiny bit of red when it gets really hot and sunny. I re-potted it into 5x5x7 white square pot at the end of season last year and it's doing very well currently. It tried to flower, but I cut the stalk off since I want it to grow. Its traps are very comparable to my B52, though the B52 is a bit older. There are currently 5 plants, so it divides very well. Looking forward to seeing that it looks like fully matured and fill out the pot.
