    No worries bomberway, I went to FEF Ridout Park today. One sad little Ping left. Frankly, mine looked better when it was close to dying! Then again, it's dead now and the one at FEF's alive. Anyway, my other Ping yielded me 4 little Pings by division, so now I have 1 big Ping and 4 small Pings. I have they survive the repotting. And I hope the numerous leaf cuttings I took sprout too!

    Anyway, for those who want to know, FEF Ridout has new VFTs. $25 each, apparently becos each is in a large pot with many large traps and growth points.

    With regards to VFT care, I put mine out in full sun all day in a tray of rainwater or distilled water. I used tapwater for a period of 3 weeks before I knew of its ill-effects to CPs, but the VFT survived. I guess 3 weeks' too short to be indicative or anything, so try to use rainwater or distilled water. I have no idea how to provide for their dormancy (which is coming soon&#33[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] though... perhaps I'll chuck them into a fridge or something. But I've heard of one experienced local growers who simply leaves them outside. Still alive apparently.

    Although I leave my VFT outside, it only gets half a day of full sun. So, it is still okay. However, it still in a pot of water all day and I try to water it (distilled H20) everyday. This is because there is a nice piece of Marchantia (liverwort) is growing in the pot and it is prone to dessication. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I think eBeyonder's VFT probably gets more sun than mine. Anyway, if your VFT is one of those totally red varieties, it will need all the sun it can get to become red. Without sufficient sun, the red VFT will look like an ordinary green one.
