    Okay cool. Um, so that would be what? A VFT takes about 5 years to reach maturity and around 3 to reach "adult" size. What type of time scail are we talking? a year to average size, 10 years? 6 months? I don't realy have an idea on sundew growth yet.

    Hi Darcie,
    Not too sure with the Aliciae, but the Capensis and Spatulata are supposed to reach flowering age in about 1 year, I think.

    I'm not sure, but I think I heard somewhere aliciae takes about two years to mature. I haven't tried them from seed yet, I obtained mine as near-mature plants.

    Well I guess I'll just have to be surprised! I'm getting a variety of seeds so it will be interesting to see the differnces in them as they mature. A year or two is faster then I expected so I'm happy about that too.

    okay kewl [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] Trust me, two years isn't slow when your used to VFT, lol! Mine is probubly 4 years old (going bye size at perchase and time I've had it) leaf cutting and it still hasn't grown up yet. I thought for sure it would flower this year but oh no, it just upped it's leaf dencity again (At peak this year it had 30 traps on one rosset) I figure next year mabey [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] It was a little guy when I got it, ah yes, I remember it well, a little over two inches around and a total of 11 traps.
