    I wasn't sure yesterday or the day before, but it looks like one of the three VFT seeds I planted is sprouting! That or a green worm is coming out of the ground and sucking out the innards of the seed. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Once it gets all the way out of it's shell, I'm going to move it to its own pot. Right now I have 3 seeds in a 6" pot. Which makes it look even smaller!

    heres a tip for making round object look bigger , but its hard to remeber , http://www.optillusions.com/dp/1-15.htm , surround the object with small or big rocks ( i can't remember ) and it'll make the small object in the middle look bigger , works if your wife wnats a big ring but you can only afford a small ring [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    I don't have a wife. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] I don't think I can find round objects small enough to make that little guy look bigger. I guess I'll just have to wait. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Congrats! They're really cute when they're young. I have a few sprouts myself. Oh, they grow up so fast! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Anyway, if you have just three in a six inch pot, you may as well leave them for now...
