    Thought I'd share a couple pics of my VFTs. Seems I can't keep a regular VFT alive to save my hide but the 'Dentate Trap' and 'Royal Red' are doing great. This is what remains of my 'Dentate Trap' VFTs after they got froze last fall. It sort of multiplied [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] !

    They are all about an inch and a half or so in size.

    This is one of the Royal Red plantlets I managed to propagate this last winter.

    It's about 2 inches across and the crown is starting to split forming a second crown.

    A lady went into a grocery store and looked into the turket section. She needed a bigger one for her family, so she asks the stock boy: \"Do these turkeys get any bigger?\"

    The stock boy replied: \"No ma'am, they're dead\"

    Great pics! I can keep thes things alive, just so long as I don't conduct any experiments, involving a stream!

    Thanks guys. Don't know why I have trouble with VFT's. Even the 'Royal Red' has been difficult for me to probagate by any method except off shoots. I've tried almost a dozen leaf cuttings and not a one has produced a plant. With a regular VFT leaf, I'd have had almost 100% success. I have had to wait for it to produce small offshoots to get more plants.
