    Looks can be deceiving

    Here is a pic of one of my VFT starting to wake up from dormancy. See if you can guess what kind it is. The picture is close to real life, but is a little to light on the red colors.

    it seems to look like a typical VFT under very good light conditions. However whatever cultivar it is...it looks magnificent.

    Close, but not close enough. Any other guesses?

    Haven't any of you read the "stickies" in the VFT forum that discusses what causes the VFT's to get red? Some do in full sun, but others do it differently. Read it. You might be suprised.

    The answer is... D. typical x red dragon, and is grown from seed that Elgecko sent me last year. This seedling is only 6 months old and is already 2 inches in diameter with .5 inch long traps!

    No Ant, a 'Green Dragon' is another cultivar, not a typical x 'Red Dragon'. It came from a mutation of 'Red Dragon' I believe.
