    Of course I do! VFT's of course! :biggrin: :cheesy: Ha! Pretty funny eh? But seriously I do have Daffodiles,Red Tulips,and I think some Gladiola's out back but I am not sure as I can't remeber. But the "other" gardeners in my house usually look after them. I just go around at night in a black suit and ski mask in the summer and spritz them with some Superthrive. Then they think they are great gardeners! Ha! Am I good or what. It is pretty fun to do that trick on them!

    I odn't know if it helps any, but instead of just dunknig my plants, I actually let them soak in the solution for a minute or so, and swished them around to ensure that no air-bubbles were preventing contact with potential fungal problems.

    I have some black beareded Irsis waking up for spring now... can't wait.. I watered the ONE with superthrive all last year, and now, it has five crowns (THey usually produce one crown per year) and is rootbound... or perhaps bulb'bound would be a better term!

    Can't wait.. will be pretty...

    how do you reproduce VFT's?

    when they are growing how do you get the 'seeds' from them to grow more VFTS?

    Hey Stefano,
    check out:
    http://www.sarracenia.com/faq/faq2500.html
    VFTs can be propagated through several methods, seed being the most time-consuming and generally troublesome.
    A flytrap must have its pollen transferred from its flower to the flower of another flytrap in bloom for seed to be produced.

    There are 4 major ways to reproduce VFT's. Leaf Cuttings,Tissue Culture,Seed,and Division. The easiest ways would be for the hobbist like ourselves would be leaf cuttings or division. I don't reccomend to get seed from your VFT. I reccomend to buy it from a seed source. That is what I will be doing at least. But Tissue Culture is for commercial businesses such as **********. So there ya go.
