    Dionaea Characteristics

    Many people have asked, what VFT is this? Well I can solve that easily for you. Look at the color, cilia shape, and even trap shape.

    Long teeth: If the Dionaea has long teeth then it shall be classified in the typical group (note some Dionaea can be in more than one group such as 'Akai Ryu').


    Short teeth: If the Dionaea has short teeth or minute teeth then it should be classified in the Dentate Traps group such as 'Red Piranha' or 'Sawtooth'.


    Red: If the dionaea has alot of red coloration then it should be classified in the Red group, such as 'Akai Ryu'.

    Mutant: If the Dionaea looks odd in a way (such as cupped traps or teeth fused together in multiple clumps) then you should classify it in the Mutant group.

    *But remember! Make sure these characteristics are on every traps, but even sometime it might not be stable such as "Pom Pom"

    you forgot the groups with fused petioles.....

    Lol this doesnt prove anything timmy, if a plant is unknown it should be left as such unless you can verify from the place you got the plant.

    environment factors are important also. A red might not look red depending on the conditions that it is being grown under....

    That certainly does simplify it. Here I bought that B52 for nothing, it was actually just a VFT Long tooth. Dang!

    Don't take offense, I am only kidding with you.

    Is it me,
    or is anyone else experiencing Déjà vu ?
    Didn't I just see this?

    In all fairness, I know there is sometimes a question of what category to post in...
    But I don't believe that is the case here.


    Many people have asked, what VFT is this?
    They did? I guess I didn't notice a lot of people asking! I would think they would know when they bought it!


    Definition of the day: Attention seeking (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

    Enjoying the attention of others is quite socially acceptable. In some instances, however, the need for attention can lead to difficulties.
    The term "attention seeking" is generally reserved for such situations, where excessive and “inappropriate attention seeking” is seen.

    I believe this term came to my mind, in view of the responses I see posted.


    Oh yea... There certainly seems to be a lot more pressure to be wise, knowledgeable and an experienced expert grower, than there was when I was younger.
    Back then, one was accepted and treated pretty much like an equal, simply because they shared in common interests. Oh how I am glad I grew up back when I did!

    Experience is the best teacher. At least it used to be.
    But then, common sense isn't so common anymore, is it.
