VFT's again, huh? Strange critters. OK the story goes that three is the norm, but the VFT can have as many as 8 triggers per lobe (very rare) and in one rarer instance, 1 trigger per lobe. Three is the norm, but VFT's like to play games with CP people to confuse and confound you. Like, my VFT's are still flowering, and I just spotted 2 more scapes coming up. If they hadn't done so many strange things over my many growing years, I would be suprised.
