    I think what Goldtrap meant was that a white pot is good for REFLECTING HEAT, NOT LIGHT if you have it in a sunny window or something. I certainly wouldn't use a black pot;

    I think we can ALL agree with his last statement; that ********** is the BEST.

    I think smaller pots produce larger traps, in general. In the wild when researchers have come across a VFT growing in a confined area, like between a ' rock and a hard place' so to speak, that it grows notably larger traps. Smaller pots must duplicate this; as long as it isn't too root bound.

    I THINK YOU HAVE A GOOD CARE SHEET; DO A LITTLE TWEAKING; THEN LAMINATE IT !

    Yeah a 12 inch diameter is something, mine was about 9 inches across last year, maybe a little more.

    If Green (one of my flytraps) rossetted during the summer, it would have about 11 inches, but it doesn't, it grows upright so it's about 5.5 inches tall, lol
    There is no item greater in value than life, for without life value would cease to exist.

    You forgot to put "alot of the info courtesy of Spec73!" [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] and most of the correct info was from me... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] The only reason I gave you the info is that you said you would put "alot of the info courtesy of spec" I never noticed that you didn't put it on, but now i don't see it, why? I feel betrayed [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

    The insect must touch the trigger hairs 2 times to stimulate the trap to close .[/QUOTE]
    OR it has to touch two trigger hairs at once [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]
