I can speak for all the varieties but I can say the green dragon is a very aggressive grower. I got mine in march and it is HUGE now. About 8, 1 inch (give or take little) traps per plant.

Hi Pips

Why don't you email or message Phil or Jeff here at Exotic Gardens...they have great plants and can tell you about the sizes. The green dragons are very nice. :)

I would go with a green dragon from this sight. You might be initially disapointed when you first take it out of the box but give it a few weeks and I promise you will be fully satisfied.

I got a Red Dragon from Mike King about a month ago, it came with 4 traps and two developing leaves. Its now got 6 traps - 3 of them are 1.5", and 9 developing leaves... its going to be big (it is already 9" across!)

My common VFT is struggling though...

just a meager 3 traps and 1 developing leaf...

I would go with a Red or Green Dragon, although Red Dragons are meant to be harder to grow :confused:

Go with the Green Dragon! They need just about the same conditions as all the others but you will be muccchhh happier with the results!
