Where as the low giant seeds I bought but the shape of this seeds is so different from the other VFT seeds it's circular and sprouted within three days and the shape of the seeds is circular not to mention the seedling is red! I am so confused please help!

Eric wrote:I don't think that "Low Giant Seed" is a VFT seed at all. I'm afraid you have been duped.I assume it's seed that came from a "Low Giant" plant the same way the "Akai Ryu" seed came from an "Akai Ryu" plant. Unless the seller was stating that you would be able to grow your own "Akai Ryu" and "Low Giant" than he really wasn't duped. Unless you're saying you think that those seeds are literally not VFT's. I think given the pics you really can't make that assertion, but he'll know soon enough as soon as the first leaves form.

Touching the moss is something I also often do. If it's likely to dry out during the course of the day, I'll water. If it will stay damp, I wait until the next day to reinspect.
