    Bob, I corrected my reference to it. Thanks for catching it.

    I agree with Bob.

    I also think that some named plants are just not so spectacular as to be worthy of a cultivar name, at least judging from my growing conditions. They're certainly nice and I enjoy growing them though. I also use only lfs and 4 inch pots and my plants are very robust.

    Some I feel are worthy are B52, fused tooth, cross teeth, low giant, pink venus, justina davis (although not my main justina as it's a sad mutant) and sawtooth among others.

    I really can't remember their summer growth right now, but I believe I was on the fence with Burbank's Best, but I was leaning towards liking it. Triffid Traps just seemed to grow rapidly and divide, not the largest traps, just a clumping type of grower. This year they may amaze me as they will be older.

    My cross teeth is too small to divide right now. I just included a tiny one for Jim. I didn't list it in my trade simply because it's "not worthy of trading yet". Next year it will be.

    Good growing guys. JoAnn

    Nice.. looks like a very healthy basket to me. And check out the traps on the second from the right, second row. They look huge!

    Are your VFTs in pure LFS or is that just topping?

    It's mostly LFS, with a mix of sand/peat/perlite in the bottom 1/3. And when the temps finally stay above freezing, they will be going outside. I plant to transfer the entire contents of each pot into these prepared pots in planters:
