This is one of the giant flytrap cultivars. The typical adult Venus
flytrap will have traps as large as an inch. Giant cultivars, however,
often have traps that grow to up to 2 inches when they reach adulthood!
This is a cross between two giant forms, B52 and Big Mouth. The
result is traps with long hairs and a light red interior.
During peak season, the plant produces large traps that lay close to
the soil. Traps are commonly 25-50% larger than the typical flytrap of
the same age. Adult plants can have traps up to 1.5 inches.
