    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.

    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

    I don't have a wife. 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.

    Congrats! They're really cute when they're young. I have a few sprouts myself. Oh, they grow up so fast!

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