    Aaaaaaah.... I'm not quite sure. I never grew any type variation of VFT, only the common VFT.

    on the topic of size, I recently purchased a vft from the local home improvement center. I planted it in a 10 gallon aquarium with several other carnivores. I noticed when taking the vtf out of the pot that there was a tiny vft in the pot as well. What do you think the survival chances of this little guy are for a newbie such as myself?

    First off welcome to the forums, Vitticeps!!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Just treat the baby VFT like any other VFT and it should be fine, if given proper soil (peat moss) and proper water (distilled water). If you growing other CP like you mention then you should do fine.

    the soil is a mixture of 40% peat, 30% vermiculite, and 30% sphagnum.

    I haven't actually grown other CP's before, I bought them all at once to make a little 10 gallon terrarium of CP's.

    I've got 2 pitchers (s. purpurea), 1 sundew (Drosera?), and 2 cobra lillies (which I now learn are not suited for terrarium growing).

    So far the little guy looks good, not wilting or anything. I hope he makes it. How long till he reaches a more reasonable, and visible, size?

    And than you for the warm welcome. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Maybe another 2 years till the VFT is within a reasonable size.
