    I could not help but this is as red as I have gotten a trap before. Thought I would share the moment:

    Thanks for the complements Snowyfalcon! I did not know it was a clone.

    For some reason I can not add it to my avatar?

    Ummm... I thought most VFTs were reproduced either through Tissue Culture or vegetative production, making them a clone (exact same genetic makeup as the parent). This way they can pick the ones with really nice color (ie yours&#33[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img], vigour, upright traps, long teeth etc. and so that all the offspring have the same characteristics.

    I made an assumption that this VFT was propogated via tissue culture (as so many millions of others are). It's possible it came from some other form of propogation, I don't know the history of your plant, therefore I guess I can't really say that it's a clone.

    So let me reword my statement. What a nice plant you have! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Question

    Definitely a nice looking VFT. How did you get it (trade, rescue, bought?).

    I saved it last year from a certain death as it was in a nursery. Some TLC and 16 hours of light does the job.
