    lol, i got the same brand of plant you got from 99cent store, and it looks wayyyy better than the one you got. i learned that. the bigger and juicier vft that i got all died back and made new leaves, and the one that looks long,skinny,and tint of red all survived and brought up a BIG clump of traps.

    Boy, has my VFT grown! It's been 3 months of my unrequited tlc, but the plant has grown! I will post pics of it when my cousin wakes up and I can use her iphone hhaha. Oh, I also have another question. My plant seems to be growing from two different spots in the pot. There are some big traps that seem to be growing from the center of the pot. And then there are some really small traps that are growing from the left side. Are these babies growing from the same bulb, or did it split? And how does the splitting process work?

    vft's typically divide at the very least once a season, so if you see 2 growth points or a large difference between the trap sizes you can generally assume your rhizome is dividing or running... eitherway you can either let it grow and stay happy and you'll end up with a nice happy clump that looks good in a single pot or you can divide it out and have 2 smaller vft's ...
    I generally wait a bit for the division to get going before dividing

    no need to repot everything if its happy and growing
