    Guess I was unclear, sorry about that. Ok, you can tell if your plant is not a typical if the plant grows differently and "won't' revert to a typical growth. For instance, I have a VFT that is flat all year, this plant is called a "prostrate clone''. If the the plant has purple traps instead of the usual red, its a red purple plant. However, if the plant sends out one ''sorta'' purple trap, then all the other traps r regular red, its not a red purple/ bigmouth plant.

    Yes, why is soil layering a bad thing? I always thought having it in pure peat was not a good thing as peat is a very dense medium.

    Nope, just a typical. I would say a common VFT can be mastaken for a blood red.

    Wes, If the plant has a consistent feature,e.g.prostrate habit, it is not a typical.Don't get the last one Wes. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img][/QUOTE]

    Peat will eventually pack down into a dense medium. Layering it will give you layers of dense soil with layers that aren't as dense.
    Usually, peat is mixed with other things so that it stays open/ not compacted longer, yet still keeps its ability to hold water.
