This is a VFT QUIZ!!!! To see how much you really know about your VFT's!
To avoid the answers being given away please private message me your answers only
The winners will be announced under the original post, when the contest ends, along with a reply telling you all that the contests over! The winner will be 'crowned' the know-it-all of VFT's!
There will be some very hard questions, to prevent people lookign up ALL of the answers, just as a safety precaution, but really I don't mind if you research the answers, because A) it will be increasing your VFT knowledge and B) everyone's got to learn somewhere, so if you don't already know you may as well learn it now!
There will be quizzes in some of the other carnivorous plant message boards too, but only the types I know enough about, so only the 'commons'.
