Dionaea muscipula "King Henry"

Fleming Island, FL(Zone 9a)

Not sure if this one is "named " at the ICPS but it needs to be.
All around impressive from all the clones I received this Spring.

KH is a monster !

After a couple of weeks.
Very impressed with this (small ) plant.

What my B52 lacks in vigor compared to KH it makes up for it in stealth . It caught a huge wasp all by itself that I'm sure will give it indigestion and kill the leaf : (

Your VFT's are all looking great!

I've got it bad with VFT's and doing seed. Raised African violets from seed to bloom. VFT seedlings are much more cute !

I am most partial to pings or more specifically mex pings.

Arlington, TX

Sar. are the bomb! Tall, colorful, exciting. Oh heck I love them all!

So I guess you two had had bad luck with VFT seeds ? ; )

Nope! I have a baby flytrap from a pulled leave as well as several of my own harvested seeds chillin in the fridge. I just am not all excited about flytraps in general but I do plan on building up a nice pot of them. Butterworts are my fav followed by Drosera, Sarracenia, Utricularia.

I am only interested in CP's I can grow outside. They just look so much better overall. I know there is at least one and possibly two pings that are native to TX, do you know which they are?

P. pumila Is the only native one I know of.

I think there is one more have to pull out The Savage Garden and look it's a mini if I remember right.

I have been trying to find for D. brevafolia and capillaris for a while, some sites have one or the other but not both. I also thought D. intermedia might be native to a few parts of TX but not sure. I think there are two speice of pings that are natives but cannot remember the second.

Prosper, TX(Zone 8a)

I've got D. brevafolia and capillaries seeds planted and have 8 intermedia plants. Butterworts being my fav but I only have 2. I myself am not real concerned with where they originate so long as they can take our summers and occasional cold winters. That said I still grow my Pinguicula indoors as well as a few Drosera just for banana nat control and the fly that always enters.
