    hey, when my VFT grows along bigger and gets maturer, do they produce seeds so i can pick them and plant in a new pot to grow more>? i read somewhere here, http://www.ct.net/~crvny/sa03005.html , that you cut a stem off with the bulb and plant it in a pot and it starts to grow?? i dont think this is how but if there is a way i would like to find out! thanks!

    Hey Stefano

    You can try to get seed and have it sprout...but it takes upwards of 5 years to produce an adult plant.

    Your other option is better.

    What you do is GENTLY pull a leave off ( actually downwards ). You want to get the 'white tissue' that is part of the bulb/rhyzome. The you plant it, keep it very humid and not too much light. In 6-8weeks you should see little plants grow from the base of the leaf. GENTLY pull those apart and plant. You have now increased your VFT population by 3-6 plants ( depends on how many are produced ).

    That is the simple way to do it.

    When you think you are ready....write me and I will give you more detail. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    At what stage of the VFT life cycle should you do this?? just after dormancy, just before dormancy or in the middle??

    Also how long would it take to turn into a plant that is 4cm wide??
