    ive come to the conclusion that VFT's just dont like me, nothing i can do about it. they are in the same trays as other CPs that are doing wonderfully(outside they are with my binata complex drosera and a few pings, inside they are in with a bit of everything) which is fine........i find Utrics more interesting anyways...a couple REALLY rare ones should be here tomorrow

    and Now! back to the original thread.
    I got my Barry Rice book yesterday,and even got to watch him autograph it.
    I leafed through it, to look at the pictures and then I read 1/3 of it last night.

    Good ole Barry recommends stratyfying VFT seed X 1 month.
    Every seed that you plant ,doesn't sprout.
    Every seed that sprouts, doesn't make it to maturity.
    Every cutting that you stick doesn't grow roots.
    Every cutting that roots doesn't grow to a small plant.
    Every small plant doesn't reach maturity.

    flytraplady, by ur nick it seems u grow VFT's too.....can u tell me if smaller traps...(total leaf size) compared to the long leaves and big traps on a dentate means its time for dormancy? I don't see the other characteristics...its still growing at the same pace....only the oldest 3 leaves that were there since the past 1 month when I bought it are becoming yellow and 2 of them are gone.

    apart from that....back to topic.....if u have savage garden and the new barry rice's book. Which one do you think is giving more info and VFTs and which one in general is better?

    I guess if u guys say that savage garden is a must have for ref...I may again get it ...hopefully michael at amazon.ca is not mad at me .

    I got my book today. Man, what a beautiful piece of literature! Great photos and great information.

    Nicely done Barry. This book deserves to be in any CP grower's collection.

    As for the above poster's question regarding Savage Garden and Growing Carnivorous Plants: I have both and I must say that both are must-owns. Go buy them NOW!

    Got my copy of Barry's book yesterday, too. I'm still working my way through it. I'd have had it read by now but all the pictures are slowing me down ! They are gorgeous! Gotta stop and look them over good before reading on to the next page.
