    Green Dragons are nice. Must deeper green than the common form. The ones I have are doing well. Growing new traps and greening up everyday. I bought 10 plugs from PFT just under a month ago. Most have 3-4 new leaves.

    I have been thinking about crossing one with a dente just to see what I can get. Probably a bunch of commons [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img].

    Next are Red Dragons.

    Did you mean to say much deeper red? They are intermediate between the green normal VFT and red Red Dragon, so they have red traps and leaves apart from a green nectar line below the teeth.

    Well, I must say that all I can tell is they are deeper green than the commons. The pictures of Green Dragons that I have seen are a deeper green and not so red. However, I will say I have a hard time telling if something has more red or green in it at times. I am somewhat red/green and blue/purple color blind (sigh). Makes things appear different to me.

    The Green Dragon traps are much darker in the center than commons. I might put it a deep purplish green. When my wife gets home, I will have her look at them.

    I think that they are pretty cool even though I never grew one. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

    My green dragon tends to spread its traps sideways rather than vertically, so it ends up capturing the least flying insects when lined up together with my dente and red dragon. Basically, most insects land on the erect traps and get caught before they can get down to the green dragon's low traps.

    Is this a common charateristic for green dragons?

    Sorry, you are right to say they are greener.
    What kind of light are they getting? Mine are extremely red.
    Here's a photo (sorry, it's been done with a scanner)

    Right now they are in a north window with artificial lighting. I have 3 on my back porch that are darker green than the ones I have indoors. I will be moving these to the back porch next weekend. I want a couple of days where I can be home to check on them.
