    ok i just got some Akai Ryu vfts that came dormant and i have potted them and pruned off the crappier looking stuff that was on it and left the stuff that wasnt blackened at all on it, and i was wondering how long it will take for some new growth, and are there any things i should know as a noob about a dormant plant? thanks in advance

    They shouldn't be dormant at this time... Are you sure? Maybe what you are confused with is the informational sign on the bottom stating that the plants might be dormant, so smaller from ? to ?. So double check that they are not dormant from the site that you bought them from. If you are still in doubt contact the Vendor and they should be of further help.
    If they aren't dormant just follow the regular plant instructions found on the internet or on this site.

    Good Luck,
    Peter

    After 3 months of no visible growth (mid-November-> mid-February) I noticed trap response within a couple days.

    Well if the description says they were dormant then they likely were. My only caution would be to make sure that you don't over water them while they are coming out of dormancy, during the transion stage they still seem a little prone to rot if too wet.

    Other than that just treat them like a normal VFTs and you should be fine.

    well you should start to see some new leaves soon, Make sure you keep it moist with PLENTY of sunlight to achieve the rich, red color from them
