    Vft "dente" natural division rate?

    Good afternoon, terraforums. I have a "dente" vft and when I repotted it this spring I found out that I had more than ten! I couldn't count them all, but all except one were seedling sized. In your experience, how often does dente divide? Thanks in advance.

    I was fertilizing and mulching my young apple trees yesterday. I found inch worms trying to eat the leaves. My VFT had a few new traps that just opened. . . I think the other inch worms understand now. I totally felt like Neegan off TWD. :banana2:
