I absolutly cannot stand VFTs that have been TCed. They always die in like 6 weeks. They come out of their pots into the bog garden and do fine until one day, as always they decide to flower. I notice hte stalk and cut it as I have no others floweing. So then all the traps die just because and the plant shrinks as if to say "That hurt badly". Then the plant either dies a few weeks later or continues to gow at a smaller rate (smaller then a dime) until it eventually recovers. Then it decides to flower at the wrong time again and it strts over. My VFT seeedligs have only 5 survivers out of 12 inital germinations. Which is Okay I guess since they wre outside and slugs got to them. Seed grown or leaf propagated plants are fine. They will grow but only to about the size of a quarter then reduce and recover. Maybe If I could have the same conainer as a bog for a couple years they would be okay. The only VFT that I have been pleased with so far is the free 'Fang' that I won from a nursery drawing. This plant decided to flower had no ill effects from having the flowers cut off not has it lost more then a few traps.
