    Just a little clarification about the 50-year-old VFT. I bought a package of 3 VFTs in a five-and-dime store in Berkeley in about 1955. They have been with me since. Every late winter I divide up the multiple "bulbs" and spread them around. In the spring, I let all my VFTs flower and hand pollinate them for seed. I always keep about 20 of the original plants (clones) in a separate pot so they do not get mixed up with selfed seedlings or other VFT breedings.

    I don't have a digital camera, so I have no photos. This old clone is rather plain with a light red trap interior and medium-sized traps (even those grown outdoors in full sun). In spring, the leaves have long uprightish petioles, becoming typical flat rosettes as summer progresses.

    Wow... it's amazing that a VFT can live that long without being claimed by a disease... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img]
