    I have seen occasional pictures posted of the two VFT's. To be honest, I couldn't tell the difference between the two. It also may be a bad time of year due plants that are just coming out of dormancy and having lost significant color. How can I tell one from the other?

    If you got them from reliable sources such that they are "pedigree", and you grow them in similar conditions, you 'll be able to notice the difference:
    akai ryu will be totally deep red
    green dragon will have some green and deep red coloration.

    Red Dragon

    Green Dragon is the more vigorous of the two too.

    Hmmn. Though the Red Dragon is less clear, I'd say that I most likely have a trio of Green Dragons - that look more like a Green Common at the moment, since it is fresh out of dormancy. Thank you for your input!

    I find Green Dragon and Red Dragon to be identical.

    Both of mine are exactly the same color throughout the year.
