I realize that it will take many years for my ‘Dracula’ plants to spread all over the pot and create a little deadly forest like I had imagined it.
Growth is not sluggish, but not particularly vigorous either. For instance, ‘Fused Tooth’ is much worse, while ‘Akai Ryu’ produces basals so aggressively that I don’t recommend installing it close to other, weaker Dionaea.
Growth started to take off in late spring 2016, eventually forming a small rosette of prostrated leaves. The late summer leaves are much longer, or should I say taller, because they are so upright.
