    Thanks for the tip Alvin....I put holes in the plastic pots for drainage as they had none. I have the pots sitting in water about 1 inch deep. Four more seeds were noted to have germinated today. The seeds were planted on May 28th (just when I was thinking how much longer do I wait)......Now I have the vft I bought from our local food store, the two babies that were in pot with it (which was why I picked it), the one that I posted the photos of nearly sprouted, the one that germinated about a week after it, and then these four.....nine!!

    VFT seeds tend to continue to germinate for a long time. I have had fresh seeds begin to germinate within a couple of weeks after sowing and kept finding seeds continuing to germinate in that pot for over a year.

    Here's a recent picture taken when I repotted the little guy. I have two seeds that sprouted at same time so c/b one or the other- but you get the idea as to growth and size.
