First off, couldn't find my camera at all this last month so these were taken with my super duper phone camera. Some of the pics are blurry but thats all I had =(
Anyways I know theres aLOT I could do to make these vfts happier but I only had a few questions..
1. I have some leaves that are basically weird. One grew and did a complete 360 halfway down and spawned a trap that didn't work. Whats up with that?
2. I also get leaves that are really bent, like they grow straight but near the end they curve REALLY bad towards the ground. Whats up with that?
3. I get a successful leaf but near the end the trap starts out half black on the tip and never really develops (I can see the black trap from the earliest stages of its leafs growth)
Why are my leaves/traps so bad?
But besides that... I got 4 vfts that seem to be doing alright. I leave the lid off during the day and at night I put on a lid that keeps them at a good humidity (The eye lashes of the traps are SOOOO long and strong!!)
*on the left you can see a small leaf that is growing south to the dirt and has a bad trap.
*the 360 leaf.
Yes I actually use toothpicks to most of the time make the leafs grow nice and pretty and seperate them from clumping.
I do not use spagnum moss atm (maybe soon I will add some), I do use only distilled water. They get a little bit of sun atm, but since I bought them from a store I never put them through dormancy so they seem to be loving it by the showing of flowers (so far 3 out of 4 plants have flowered in the last month)
