General Description
 
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.

The flytrap is doing really well.  It has already caught two insects and started to eject one.  Great pliant.

B52 x Low Giant Flytrap [Sm] July 21, 2018
Reviewer: Charles Houlding from Waco, TX United States  
Nice healthy plant!  It's growing well indoors under lights.  I'll put it outdoors in November when Waco mimics Wilmington, NC weather/temperatures.
