    It's kinda exciting to see what the hell i have planted though, it's sprouting very good!
    You'll be able to tell whether they're VFT's very shortly. Generally the third leaf is first true carnivorous leaf (first two are cotyledons), and will have a little trap on the end of it. If you still don't see traps by the fourth leaf, it's probably something else.

    Yes, i will keep posting images as time goes by in this thread.

    Perhaps it will turn into something monstrous that bites my finger off!
    Or perhaps some good hemp, i don't know but it's growing pretty quick, and the roots lookes like those white extremly thin things that a real flytrap has.

    Oh, I took i photo so you can see that it in my novice opinion clearly atleast reminded at VFT seeds, and i mean the seeds on top of the sprout... not the sprout itself, but as i said, i have only seen seeds on picture before i got these.



    The seeds are still visible on top of the strange sprouts.

    Thanks for rubbing it in!

    The seeds actually looked quite like the "real" seeds in this link:

    Dionaea seeds do look similar to several other genera, but I can give probably an 80% likelihood they're Hylocereus, which is what so many other people who've been ripped off end up sprouting....
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    Well now I can confirm that it is dragonfruit as you say. I have two pots of dragonfruit now that I do not want to kill, but I don't need so many!
