    Hello

    I have a VFT I have been growing for a while now that seems to produce fewer spines (Almost always 15 per lobe). The spines also seem much longer then a typical VFT.

    Here is a photo of one of the traps

    thanks

    Interesting color on the cilia as well. Could register it I suppose if the trait is consistent and regular.

    A very spectacular specimen. Take cuttings of that plant. If you find that the cuttings stabaly produce extended cilia, register it, name it, and propogate it.

    That looks similar to the "Long Red Fingers" shown at Tony's

    Yeah I have to agree the teeth and coloring looks the same, but when stressed like before dormacy, in my experience with a Long Red finger is simular to a cross tooth or better yet a fused tooth with all the teeth fused together.
    Kind of like this-
    Looks bad due to dormacy...

    The Long Red finger is a great plant, but boy is it picky! It's a very unusual plant, it grows like any other VFT in the spring and summer but in the fall is when it shows it's fused tooth appearence. The plant really dislikes repotting and moving around from different environments.
    (Sorry for the second post, if I edit the top one then I would have to reattach the pictures from photobucket.)

    Peter. Interesting. I have a plant labeled "Dingley Giant." It also dislikes transplanting and when I took a cutting of it, shock impeded its growth for alomost a season. I recently changed the plant into pure peat.(The plant came with soil and I thought that that could have been the cause of stunted growth.)However, the coloration is just plain stunning! That probably makes up for its picky growth. All of Tony's plants are always stunning.
