    They'll do great! Those are some huge traps in that picture in your hand, unless you have tiny hands.

    The only problem I see is the fact that the font size is way to small! lol.

    lol! that is the B52. its traps are 2 inches in size.

    that is like a golf ball corm.

    lol! sorry about the font...I was trying to make it more compact and easy to read....I guess it didn't go that way

    I am already missing this sight. The best looking VFT sight I ever had. The traps also had nectar on them at the cilia.



    hmmm....I guess I have to wait a while ot see this again. the nice intricate crowd of neatly placed traps.

    Great looking vft

    They obviously loved the lighting. Excellent coloration and form. Just remember to give them a nice, cool dormancy this winter. If you continue to grow them in a terrarium as a tropical houseplant, they will eventually weaken and die since they didn't get their rest. It will also encourage them to bloom.

    If you ever need to transplant or divide them, dormancy is the perfect time to do it. It minimizes shock. They are actually very hardy and not as delicate or fragile as people seem to think. They just need excellent lighting and water while growing, and a nice rest for the winter.
