    Wouldn't be great if we didn't have to put our VFT in dormancy and they could last with out dormancy forever. If we somehow could combine pollen or something with plants don't need a dormancy period such as Heliamphora, Nepenthes, etc. Just imagine, home on a snowy winter sitting by the fireplace and there is your VFT, right there, next to it. As you feed crickets to your plant. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] Does this sound great?

    That would be great because I HATE dormancy. But the only thing I have to say to you E-Plants is Keep Dreaming. Nep.G.

    unfortunately, that is a bit like adding the sperm of a whale to the egg of a dolphin, it would take a vast amount of genetic research and manipulation to make it happen, and who knows if the result is really worth the effort.

    I personally think they are just fine the way they are, the occasional sports and cultivars enhance the experience yes, but truthfully, out of say, the flytraps, I still think the typical is one of the most beautiful of them all.

    Rampuppy are you wanting to get into genetics? If you did that to a dolphin egg it would be a umm.... Dolpale! Nep.G.

    But part of the fun in growing flytraps is dormancy-it just makes them harder to grow and thus more rewarding when u have a healthy plant.

    But could this be possible, making a VFT have no dormancy?
