    "Actual plant may vary from photo"

    Yeah - mine varied-----a total of about 20 traps on 2 Red Dragons! Much nicer than your sample pic and much, much, much nicer than the stuff at the hardware store. Thanx guys!

    This place is the best! I have a Staghorn fern that was huge on arrival and is growing like crazy...and a Sarracenia that had a five pitchers and in just a few months is popping out of it's pot with about 11 or 12! The plants from Petflytrap.com are amazing and so healthy...plus the customer service is the greatest. Phil and Jaie should be the only sellers allowed in the CP market!!!

    Hmmm... I jumped from being a "newbie" to a "member" after only 6 posts. Are there magic numbers that tie in to status changes? Anywayz...Against all advice on these forums - I've transplanted. Put my 3 plants into an 8" ceramic pot that is glazed inside and out. But it wasn't 3 plants - it was 4 plants. Jeff ended up shipping me a third plant that is soooooooooo tiny!!! So I got the 1 Common and the 3 Red Dragons in this pot now. Looks like a family: "Pa", "Ma", "Li'l Red", and "The-Cousin-That No-One-Ever-Talks-About". The family seems to be doing fine under a 50 watt screw in grow light on a 12 hour cycle; a total of 5 new traps are showing/unfolding. Have been meticulously trimming off the black here and there. The RD's seem to be showing more vigor than the Common; I was expecting the opposite trend. Actually I was expecting them all to be dead by now so every little change that happens with them is noted. I totally dote on these things...

    ummmm...maybe transplanting wasn't such a hot idea after all. Nothing has been happening since my last post except the family looks a bit more wilted than they did a few days back - no new growth - nada. Hopefully they'll come outta the shock and learn to enjoy their nice, new, big home. Maybe next time I'll actually put into practice what people that grow these things for a living have to say regarding this and that...

    I've heard that after re potting the plants take a week to start growing again.

    Well here is 2 easy reliable ways to get them back outta shock. #1. Use a diluted amount. (1 drop of it per gallon of distilled water. Use an eyedropper to get it precise.) #2. Just wait! Yes, wait! Your plants if they were healthy before will eventually come out of it on thier own.
