    I did notice that my VFTs have a lot longer leaves than most people's. Is this typical of the variety or is it an indicator that the plant isn't getting enough light?[/QUOTE]
    No, it actually means that your plants are healthy. Your plants are very healthy, and your lucky to have some so big and beautiful! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Oh yess and do feed you plant spiders, flys, and other insects.[/QUOTE]
    Nope, again I'm taking a hands off approach (ok ok I'm lazy [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] ). I've learned the plant does a better job at catching bugs than me trying to feed it. Although it is indoors it does catch the occasional bug. At least 3 traps have remains of bugs still in them.

    No, I'm saying that it's normal for VFTs to produce long leaves in this part of the year. During the dormancy season, they have short, ground-level leaves, while in the growing season, they have long, sometimes upward leaves. Of course, there is one exception. The het (I can't remember the rest of the word... it's a VFT with no red or pink pigment) VFT never grows long leaves. But all other VFTs, if I'm not forgetting any, have long leaves in the growing season and short leaves in the dormancy season.
