    I suppose the early flytrap gets the rehydrated, freeze-dried blood worm... [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Hm, besides my outdoor flytraps, which were mulched over with the start of hard frosts, I knocked mine out in late November. I suppose that's late for most people, but I hate to put a flytrap that's still growing vigorously to bed. I'm waking mine up, as always, in late March.
    That means they'll get approx. four months dormancy. Personally, I just don't think three months is long enough!

    BTW poor Phil (not the person, the groundhog!![img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]).
    It doesn't sound like they're doing this the right way. Just waiting for the poor guy to come out his burrow, and then getting some mysterious 'fat guy' to grab him isn't what I'd call fair. They should just let Phil decide for himself(itself?).
    Sorry, human Phil. An unfortunate coincidence! [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Phil (the groundhog) saw his shadow today...so 6 more weeks of winter they say.
    Maybe Phil (the human, phlitrapguy) was named after the groundhog....perhaps a mom with an odd sense of humor?[img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Hey Guys, here's an update on the VFT'S growth. Well my largest VFT is producing new traps,and my other ones RD,GD are doing wonderfully! I also have my S.Flava var. Flava producing a flower!!! I am soo happy! I have a question about S.Flava var. Flava's flowers also. How do they smell? I have heard they are extremly unpleasant smelling so I wouild appreciate anyone's opinion on thier aroma. Thanks.

    I've had them flower and they seemed fine, unless my sense of smell is horribly messed up! I read somewhere they're supposed to smell like 'kitty litter boxes'. Hmm...

    Yup. Phil emerged from his luxurious burrow today, amid 25,000 spectators, the news media, and tight security(to protect the fat rodent from terrorists).
    But hey, I know plenty of people named Phil, but none named Punxsatawney!

    Terrific....Just Terrific! But I read in D'Amato's book that Flava's flower's don't tend to smell that way. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Thay smell more like Boxwood or Musty odors.

    Well Mondo I am getting bored because I have cabin fever! I am stuck up in NY with all of this blasted snow! I want spring to be here! That's why I am bored at looking at my other CP's but now that my VFT's are resuming growth I am getting out of the bored mode and back into cool and awesome mode. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] But anyways I applied my fungicide by dunking the whole plant roots and all under the fungicide/water mix. And look how it worked for me! Perfect -plants!

    I use the whole pot method, but I'm sure NG's is fine.

    NG, sounds like you'd like bulbs(eg tulips, alliums etc.) Grow any?? You know Spring has finally arrived when you see the daffodils coming up! But I think that January thaw we had recently confused my crocuses--they're trying to come up now! :shocked: But I think I fixed that.
    Do you grow any bulbs? Loads of people are obsessed with 'em for good reason. :biggrin:
