    Ok, I put the 3 bare ones in one pot. It was a lot harder than it looks to pot the little guys. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] I the fine tooth x red is SO tiny, I think it is only barely over 1 year. I hope they live.

    Dingley's has that description. I think the more humid it is the longer the teeth. This tip might come handy with your breeding jhaluska.

    I have a Dingley's Giant. I'd like it to be more vertical, and wider leaves. I'm going to see if more light will help it out.

    Well, they haven't died yet so I decided to take some pictures.

    The vigorous is at the top, low giant is bottom right and the tiny red x fine tooth is bottom left.


    Here is the blood red vft as it came in a pot. I'm not happy with the soil medium. I'm going to repot it when I get a chance.


    And here is my old dingley from Tony. The other plants weren't from Tony.


    Please don't say they look like they need more light, I JUST bought a lighting system so they will be getting a couple more hours of light a day.

    You should clip the dingley...that trap is black..and fungus might appear...I clip the traps when they are all black and then clip off whatever the stem/leaf part has turned black...this way it has no chance of fungus..it is bad when you get fungus.
    Do you have those inside under flourecent lights or by a window?
    I share your sorrow and your grief…Numberless times I convey my anguish.....

    This is my story.

    I clip the leaves when they are all black. I'm not too concerned with fungus.

    I just got a 48" flourescent light setup with two bulbs meant for plant growth. I thought my bulbs popped the first time the timer went off! hehe [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I hate potting plants, it sounds so easy but I keep thinking I've done it wrong. I think the Dingley I potted a couple weeks ago made it, but I'm watching the other ones right now. I bought the lights to give the plants the best possible chance. I just hope they all make it. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]

    So far the best way I have found to pot up VFT (or any plant) is to cover the roots with dirt (potting soil or whatever) water thoroughly to get the soil washed into any large air pockets around the roots, set in a spot with bright indirect light, and then forget about it for the most part except to water and check its condition every few days.
