    Hi everyone,
    I have some young vfts, about an inch to 1 and 3/4 inches. Anyway, the 2 smaller ones have these really healthy looking green leaves, problem is, the leaves are really, really wide, and have really small traps. It looks like some kind of butterwort! Is this a known kind of vft variation, or am I doing something wrong? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]

    It sounds ;ile this is dormancy related: with the rapidly decreasing daylength the plant is likely trying to increase its photosynthetic area to compensate. This happens about this time of year with my plants.

    Yes, I think that it is a dormancy thing. As for the dimensions, the leaf is about twice as wide as the widest trap on the newer growth. Thanks [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
