Thread: How do you tell which vft you have?

    So far I've heard of Green Dragons, Read Dragons, and regular vft's. How can I tell what I have? I bought mine at a store, but the lable didn't say what kind I have. Some of my traps have red, some have only green, and some are sort of mixed. What kind do I have?


    Also, I'm thinking of replanting it out of the plastic store pot into a bigger pot filled with peat moss and sand. I'm not sure what the store planted it in, but it doesn't look like peat moss. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img] It sort of looks like it was planted in pure moss because some of the "dirt" is slimey and green and some of it is growing into a plant that is not a vft. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img] Should I wash off all the store dirt off of the roots when I replant it, or should I keep it attatched the the plant when I replant it?

    Be aware, however, that most of the names are not officially registered and have no published information that describes how that plant differs from other VFTs.
