    New VFT

    Picked up this new VFT today. Had some great color, so I had to get it.

    Where did you get it? Looks like 'red line'.

    I don't think red line can be characterised as a cultivar on its own. I have a typical VFT which shows red line as well.

    this is a very old pic though. 4 months ago.

    kruegersc4,
    I do not think that there is any plant registered as 'Red Line'. I think some use "Red Line" as a descriptive term for a plant that shows the line on the outside of the trap.
    It was bought at Walmart. Anyway just for my records I will be calling it VFT - Typical - Red Line.
    I do the same thing with a seed grow VFT that has the largest traps of any plant I have. VFT - Typical - Large Traps.


    Jerry,
    I hope the new growth shows the line on the outside of the trap.


    zappafan,
    Yes it was from Walmart.
    Bloomrite is the company that has them there. They have the best care info on there packaging of anyone I've seen selling VFT over the years, other then say a nursery specializing in CP's.

    I bought two VFTs last year at Wal-mart, and they had great color and good-sized traps. I grew one of them in a terrarium for several months under high intensity lights and it exploded in growth. That plant actually went to Est during my downsizing...
