    Well no one to my knowledge ever said it was beter to grow vfts from seed!
    But generaly plants grown from seed are more adapted to there enviroment.

    No, seed grown plants and asexually produced plants can't just be bluntly divided into one better or one worse. Its just that one can get a diverse set of variation from seeds but cuttins, TC, of budding produce identical plants. How strong, vigorous, or colorful a plant produced asexually is, is dependent on how the mother plant is like.

    However, it's always more fun to grow plants from seeds IMO. Who knows what variations a seed prodeced plant could bore. You could get "Giants," VFTs with magenta traps, upright growth, prostrate growth, and many other varieties. Crossing plants for desired traits could also be fun, but bear in mind that typicals are usually the result.

    Question

    why would crossing two vft that are far from typical result in a typical and not a mix of the parent trates.

    Because vfts are geneticly unstable,this is what keeps them going in the wild because they have such genetic variances,any "special" trait usualy wont pass on to the offspring and they will look like a bunch of "typicals". However some of the offspring MAY have the desired phenotype(apearence) and others may have the genes but just not show it in there phenotype, if these are self polinated the trait is more likely to show up as the phenotype in the offspring but you still would likely just get a load of "typicals".
