    My legendary four leaf clover is doing great! It was looking a little piqued so I repotted it and put it outdoors in the sun. Its now got lots of new growth including a SIX leaf clover!! Maybe yours needs to be repotted?

    All the pics are out of focus and very difficult to see. Try not to take the picture so close.

    Picture 9,8, & 16 of your 25+ trap VFT shows that there are possibly more than one VFT in your pot by the fact that there seems to be at least 2-3 centers where the traps are attached.

    Maybe I'm wrong...but that seems to be the case, being the pictures are so burred.

    Yeah, I bet come dormancy and splitting up time you'll have a couple of plants. I counted 26, but could be wrong because they are blurry. It looks pretty healthy to me.

    hmm maybe it could be different growth points. Reason I dont think it is, is because it was from a real tiny plant straight from a 18 month old tissue culture. I didn't think it would divide that fast in 3 months. How can you tell if its acutally different growth points? They all center down to one area.

    Sativa, from your description, you are indeed dealing with one growth point...

    Some times in tissue culture (as I understand it) plants may start dividing, then are taken out of culture, and they continue the division at a much slower rate, which would account for the rapid production of multiple growing points IF it was what you were dealing with... if all the leaves attach at the same point, you got yourself one whopper of a growth point!

    Also, you might try watering it with superthrive once, this helps the roots recover. ANd perhaps putting some no-slip matting under the pot so it won't slide around easily?

    To a couple of you, you know who you are... what's the deal poking fun? It's not a funny situation. I have messaged you in private about this.

    I notice my cam zoomed the background fine without the blurr. I took it so close so it can better show the leaves. I'll try and take one from far tonight.
