    i have four vfts in a 6 inch pot, and one of them has long, floppy leaves, and one has straight same length leaves that stay up about....60 degrees..( about half way between 90 and 45 degrees). the one with the floppy leaves seem to be older. the other two seem to be in the middle. anyone know why?

    How long have you had the plant? Have you changed any cultural conditions lately? Long floppy leaves usually indicate the plant is not getting enough light.

    they are in direct sunlight all day, and they always have been. all four of them are in the same pot, and only one of them has long, semi-floppy leaves.

    Sounds like it is just the characteristics of that one plant then.
