    I'm telling you, they need some serious light. The plant looks too green and the baby traps are kinda deformed. More light will cure everything [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img][/QUOTE]
    I just changed the lighting recently, they were low on light for about a week. Could that be the problem or do you think I still have too little. Right now I have a 26 watt "daylight" CFL shinning directly down in for about 15 or 16 hours/day. The tip of it is about 7 or 8 inches from the soil, so the light hitting them should be pretty intense. Do you think I should be looking at something more? Would leaving the light on 24/7 help? Thanks.

    The Dente looks good, the intermedia looks a little under the weather, probably due to shipping. I'd say the same goes for the Typical VFTs. The new growth should perk up more than the older growth will recuperate (sp?) to. They all look healthy though, no black leaves, extreme wilting etc.

    They look ok to me. I think they could stand to have more light, though, as they are so green (not a hint of pink). You would be better off if you could a) move the light a little closer (but don't cook them) or b) slowly acclimate them to real sun. But not to worry, they do look pretty healthy. I had one that I rescued from Lowes as the beginning of the summer. It is a typical with a tendency to stay flacid. It was pathetic when I got it. Now it's coloring up nicely and really showing some growth (not the one pictured).
