    You can even sprout VFTs on a wet paper towel!!! You could try that.

    VFTs can have many many traps per plant.

    Acutally I recall reading that as well. There were quite a few "personal" or "non-credited" sites which said that. I know....I was pretty confused as well when my VFT started putting out like 13 leaves or so.

    Indeed, one of my current Typical VFT's has about 14 leaves with two new ones forming, it's in a clump though.

    As far as I know, I think that's a good thing...

    ...The eight leaf thing is just an average. If yours has 14 leaves then it generally means it is very happy.

    I read sort of the same thing except.. it was worded like.. "If your VFT has more than 7 leaves then it has actually split into two plants." I doubt that is accurate either though.

    So don't feel bad. :P

    Ah, my plant created a long summer trap that went towards the light, I heard that was bad.

    It had maybe 11 or 12 leaves when I got it, it's made some more since, since it has 14 and two new ones forming, that would make 16. Its first trap opened prematurely, and its second one that went towards the light got attacked by pests (which are now all gone hahahaha) so it is still a flimbsy leaf that doesn't do much but photosynthesize, and it has a new one almost done. To be honest, if this trap forms right, it will be the first trap that is able to eat something since I got them! Haha! Its first traps didn't work really and the next two didn't. I've only had 2 out of like 6 traps eat something on all my plants, one took 3 weeks and another took about 5 days and the 5 day one ate a 1/4-1/2 cm wide 1 inch long thing that crawled out of the soil of one of my plants, this was my big mouth which is making leaves quicker even though it made a flower stalk that broke off when it was done. Anyways, enough rambling for me.

    Edit: The Typical VFT has two more tiny leaves coming in now too, so this would raise the count to 18.

    7 leaves per plant seems too short
