    Spring fever

    Well, spring is here and my VFT are really beginning to grow. I have been busy with school lately and have not had much time for TF. Now that I am almost finished, I had the time to take some pics of my vft. Enjoy!
    Bigmouth VFT




    My typical vft's have been infected with some aphids and is now beginning to recover.


    And for good measure, a S. alata Covington, LA. I actually have too many of these and may trade some this year. I have 6 pots full of them, 4 pots are seen in the photo.

    Thanks everyone. I use a 50:50 peat, perlite mix and grow them just like a nep, except in full sun. This method works best for me because when I would grow them in standing water they would be healthy in the summer but in the winter (I kept them damp in winter) they would decline and in the spring they would really be struggling right now. However, the TF member that originally sent me 5 big mouth vft in 2005 recommended to grow them drier like in the winter time. Since using this method my vft have dramatically improved in health, and some of the bulbs I repotted were 2 inches large! They also clump better grown the drier way IME.

    BTW, are the big mouth too tightly clumped? I repotted them just 4 months ago but they have clumped like crazy this spring.
    Thanks,
    Tyler
