    Hello I just bought and recieved some new vft bulbs last week from this site. There are some traps on them and I was wondering if I should do the dormacy thing or wait until next year when they are stronger.

    I wouldn't do the dormancy thing yet. They don't need it.

    The traps that were left on the plant may die off due to shock of transplant, so don't be alarmed [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Anyway, wait for the winterizing of the plants.. they'll do fine without for this coming season.

    What do you mean by they don't need it?

    Is it because they are young, or because that batch was cultivated in such a way that they can skip this dormancy season? Or is it some terrible secret which you can't reveal? [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    We have the plants that are in dormancy during different times of the year, so if you just now receive something from us, it has been pulled from dormancy pretty recently. So it can skip this seasons dormancy, and wait until next year about this time! [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    No secrets!

    Cool glad I asked [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
    They are doing fine by the way one plant has a dieing leaf it wasnt looking so good but the trap was functional so I forced fed it a fruitfly hoping that it would help. By the way those buggers are a pain in the butt to catch by the wings with tweezers!
    THANKS AGAIN!

    You know now that I think of it I bet the neighbors across the street think I'm a little batty too. I usually catch the bugs (earwigs) outside, anywhere between 10pm and midnight with a flashlight and tweezers for my larger vfts. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] I do it then cause that's after my daughters bedtime, in case you are wondering.
