i'll try to take pics but i must tell yuh i've never posted a piuc on internet before and i'm not a very good photographer but i'll try . the blood red trap vft is absolutly beutiful , i got it from cooks and the 50 year old plant is quite nig . i'll get pics as soon as possbile .
Just a little clarification about the 50-year-old VFT. I bought a package of 3 VFTs in a five-and-dime store in Berkeley in about 1955. They have been with me since. Every late winter I divide up the multiple "bulbs" and spread them around. In the spring, I let all my VFTs flower and hand pollinate them for seed. I always keep about 20 of the original plants (clones) in a separate pot so they do not get mixed up with selfed seedlings or other VFT breedings.
I don't have a digital camera, so I have no photos. This old clone is rather plain with a light red trap interior and medium-sized traps (even those grown outdoors in full sun). In spring, the leaves have long uprightish petioles, becoming typical flat rosettes as summer progresses.
Ok.. as promised I have posted a few pics of my Flytraps. Just clik the my homepage link to see them.
p.s. a couple of them were a lil camera shy and didnt make it into the gallery yet lol I'll try to get some more posted soon.
