    Wow. Very nice VFT's.

    I'm impressed with the all red VFT's.

    What kind are they?

    The reason I ask is I want some red VFT's that stay completely red when mature. Your red VFT's look mature, and are solid red.
    I have Red Dragons, when young the whole plant is red, but as it matures the petioles get more green on them.
    I have heard the VFT 'Pink' is supposed to stay red when mature. I'm have found out this year that is not true. My petioles have green on them.

    Thank you all for the kind words

    Nightsky- That could be either Red Dragon or Big Jaws x self, if the plant you mean is all red, then it is the former.

    Devon- That beautiful plant is Big Jaws x Dente and is Philcula's creation. The plant is in a 5-6 " pot

    elgecko- The pure red plants are Red Dragon. I receive intense light through my poly in my greenhouse and I attribute that to the bright coloration in the plants. VFT "Pink" will stay the same color as Red dragon , but again the light intensity is crucial. Maturity of the plant does not seem to matter

    Macca- Why the sad face?

    My plants grow outside in full sun dawn to dusk..... never get that coloration on them.
    I have noticed from pictures that many VFT's grown in greenhouses have better coloration for some reason.

    Fantastic VFT's

    Elgecko: you could always get...a petite dragon?I have a couple of them and those stay a solid red and probably some of the deepest reds i've ever seen. of course you may not appreciate their... petiteness :P Just a thought as its my only "all red" vft, my red piranha's all have the green edge, albeit a thin one...
