We did this much later than I had hoped but we finally got it done. Sorry for the bad camerawork for the first half of the video. I was doing the video, talking and pointing out plants and it was challenging! I think it went better once Leah came out to help finish the tour. Hope you all enjoy it!

@Carnies, good! It's growing well! I'll snap a photo of it later and post it here. It's super ridiculously hot here today -- our outdoor thermostat is reading 107°F at 4pm PST!!! Plants aren't gonna like that intense heat coupled with the very low humidity level of 18%. Ugh :( Looking forward to mild and humid Missouri, at least for the plants. I could do without the humidity myself, but plants' needs come first, right?!!

@Sundew grower, no many of the flytrap "freaks" aren't able to properly catch prey. That turns some people off, but I'm always intrigued and impressed by the diversity within this species and find all of the genetic abnormalities that are exhibited in different cultivars fun and fascinating!

@Matt, Definitely! Has 'Gremlin' been dividing for you? For the longest time, it hasn't even produced a growth point but has a huge rhizome at least an inch and a half in length.
