    Tim, that's a nice looking 'Dente'. I just got mine today [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] . I got the double plant option.

    As for dormancy and leaf shape. The plants come ready to grow from PFT. The leaves, I think, will get a little longer this summer based on how my typicals and 'Dragons' grew last year. The short stocky leaves could be due to coming out of TC or a short 'microdormancy' that TC plants are given to prepare them for life outside the tube. Those are my guesses. Maybe one of our TC gurues can educate us on that? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Must say, I think they are better looking in real life than as a pic on someones web page. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Hehe, yeah. There's at least four itty bitty guys and there might be one or two more, but they are too small and too close together to tell without getting rough and possibly damaging some leaves on the two bigger plants.

    I would say that the majority of the 30 or so vfts I've bought from this website were more than one.

    BigKid, you'll love yours. I was just watching one of those ugly house flies two or three days ago. It tricked one trap, then the other just munched it. Even in my greenhouse, they pig out all the time. At the end of the year, I hope to repot all of mine to see how many I get.

    Regards

    Tim,
    I agree with you. I have got several plants from PFT and I've always got my monies worth and then some [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] . Good, healthy plants that show few if any signs of shock from shipping and they are always in good shape. I took the picture of my new 'Dentes' after giving them a few spritzes to get some specks of peat off the leaves and that was it.

    I just got my first Vft from pft a few weeks ago (also a dente), and they're putting up new traps like there's no tomorrow! I also got the double potted option, but I think there are at least three full plants in my pot in addition to an incredibly tiny one. Definately worth it! To think I almost bought plants from Lowes (Don't laugh, I was young and naive). [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
