I could not help but this is as red as I have gotten a trap before. Thought I would share the moment:

Thanks for the complements Snowyfalcon! I did not know it was a clone.

For some reason I can not add it to my avatar?

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&#33

, 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 saved it last year from a certain death as it was in a nursery. Some TLC and 16 hours of light does the job.

good color, my red dragon is finally recovering its color after being put inside for a bit for fear of a bird attack just in enough time for it to start dormancy...bummer

Thanks for the nice words

. 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
