I had a few seeds of these. They grew very rapidly and within a few
weeks on blood-agar they were too large for the little test tubes. I
decided to establish them to greenhouse culture where one of them ate
my cat :-(
The neighbours dog also disappeared suddenly :-)
However after one of the little trees attacked the postman I decided
to kill them by overfertilizing, knowing that this is the way to kill
_all_ carnivorous plants...

All the best and happy christmas,
