Ummm... I thought most VFTs were reproduced either through Tissue Culture or vegetative production, making them a clone (exact same genetic makeup as the parent). This way they can pick the ones with really nice color (ie yours!
, vigour, upright traps, long teeth etc. and so that all the offspring have the same characteristics.
I made an assumption that this VFT was propogated via tissue culture (as so many millions of others are). It's possible it came from some other form of propogation, I don't know the history of your plant, therefore I guess I can't really say that it's a clone.
So let me reword my statement. What a nice plant you have!
. I think it was BCK that said August and September (I think October too) are the best months for vfts. BCK hit that on the head. It really stinks they need to go into dormancy around November. Well next year should even be better
