Hi all. I have tried to raise red VFTs in my barrel bog without success. The typical forms all do great, but the red forms, ie red dragon and simillar named varities never make it past their second season. For some reason, by late spring the typicals are growing with vigor and the reds, after a brief growth spurt, die.
The growing conditions are the same for both types, in fact they are grown together in the same part of the bog.
Is there a trick to getting these red guys to grow that is different from the typicals?
Thanks for any thoughts
