They are, aren't they :)

I have fed the trap on the photo and yesterday it just re-opened. That's how it looks now, 5 days after the first photo. It's the one on the left on previous photo. They are growing way faster than I thought they would.

Hello Fellow Insect (Other small creatures may apply) annihilating Perennial Herb growers.

Just so I'm on the same page here, is "Fuzzed extreme" the going handle for the unique varieties we may cultivate from this particular mix of genetics. I for one have some high hopes for my little investment. One seed that caught my eye is the 11th seed in the 10 seed Fussed x Fuzzed Tooth packet I had ordered from Matt. The seed looks like two seeds fuzzed together. Of 81 seeds planted on Feb 15, first five sprouts Feb 21 = 1 Green/red , 2 large green. 2 large blood red. To date Feb 25 there are 18 sprouts with quite a range of colors. I'm pretty happy with the quick results, diversity and vigor of of the seeds I received.

Seed growns: I didn't found many of plants having tooth variation but instead more plants with the red pigmentation. Even with the rainy days and days so cloudy, the plants which are all green in the outside maintain a very extreme red on the inside.

This is my VFT Long Maroon Monster, which was sent by Matt almost 2 years ago I think and it looks a lot like FTS Maroon Monster. This VFT is still small but it has shown to be a great plant with vey deep red coloration inside and the leaf blade with a combination of red in the margin with green....this plant certainly is growing well and grows vigorously like FTS Maroon Monster. The plant next to it looks a bit like Long Maroon Iris except that that the leaf blade is much more thinner and doesn't grow as vigorously as this one. Also, compare the other surrounding red plants and you will understand why this is a great VFT! I will put this VFT in TC this summer! :)

More comparisons of green vs red VFT's:
Image
Image


Some bigger VFT's with no name yet, the traps are very big and grow very vigorously, they remind me of yet another FTS VFT such as FTS Etna.
Image
Image
I didn't measure the leaf blade, but of course you can see it is very large:
Image

This is another VFT ( no name yet) grows like the other VFT above and looks like FTS Etna except that the teeth are much shorter and wide:
Image
Image
Image


And this is another:

Image





And more small VFT's:
Image

Dionea was mentioning a lot of tooth variation, in this case, the ones I have show more red pigmentation and not much tooth variation. These are very appealing to the eye as they are completely all green and then the inside is completely deep red.
Image
Image

And yes, they are submerged in the water:
Image

Image

A very interesting VFT with traps that look like cupped traps, small traps but the leaf blades are long:
Image
Image

I am in the process of putting more pics of my plants in here:

Enjoy! :)
Why are traps submerged? i like how your media looks, What kind of media mix do you use?

Any VFT grown from seed is a 'typical', and should be labeled that way as to not muddy up the cultivar pool. Great to see your doing well with the seeds though. You should have some great typicals in the next couple of years.

Matt won't sell garbage. So yes, given good conditions they will grow.

Cool, just bought some RED seeds... Too bad the fused-tooths were out of stock, those look awesome!

How do seeds work btw, are they guaranteed to get the same plant the seed came from or is it always something different?

Seeds are pretty much a genetic crap shoot. For example the reds are much more likely to provide red plants. The plants grown from seed should always be labeled as 'typical'. All cultivars came from seed at some point though, that's why people like to grow from seed.
