Yes that’s Flytrap Store ;)

It is very small but I’m hoping it will take off soon :)

Also if I need to burry it deeper tell me :?

I still don't know for sure how large this one can get as I'm still evaluating it. But I've been impressed with its vigor and particularly its size even as an immature flytrap for a red-leafed plant. Keep me posted on how it does for you down south! You're one of the very few people growing it at the moment.

You know, for how small it was when I received it, it got pretty darn big very quickly!

That's been my experience with it as well! And it seems to get pretty big in our environment here, but I've not fully evaluated it yet and am not 100% sure that I'll want to propagate it. I do like it a lot though!

Thanks for being on the "FTS Incredible Red Hulk" evaluation team :D I think you, Jeremiah, Antoine, Eric Morrow, and Josh Krebsbach are the only ones growing it for me right now. If you all think it is a nice plant and worthy of propagating, I'll probably offer it at FTS.

Atm it is almost identical to the red piranha you sent, but with slightly longer cilia. I’ll update the red piranha thread

I saw that the teeth on your FTS Incredible Red Hulk look much more serrated than I've ever seen on mine! It does look a bit like a Red Piranha for sure and that's likely one of the parent plants because I've done a lot of crosses with Red Piranha over the years.

@Adrien, Thanks for the update on this wonderful plant! I really need to be better at taking photos and posting them but I've had trouble keeping my head above water this spring!!

Seems like the "evaluation crew" I sent FTS Incredible Red Hulk to have been impressed with the plant so we're going to head and propagate and release it. I have it in tissue culture now so we should have some plants to offer later this summer if the deflasking and hardening process goes well!
