I now have some of the VFT seeds packaged up and available for request by eligible members. The surprise about them is that these come from Matt at FlytrapCare. He hand pollinated many to try for possible new cultivars, but they're not separated out so they're all essentially OP from his 2019 crop.
These are all FTC VFT seeds, and could literally be anything in his collection, any combination of cultivars, or the next big new cultivar that will be on everyone's want list. Matt said the germination rate isn't what he expected, hovering at +/- 50%, so each pack contains about 50 seeds as per his suggestion.
The only caveat that comes with these seeds is, if you get a new and unique plant, a new cultivar, you are required to give Matt and I a division or two. OK, no, not really, you don't have to, I'm only joking. But it would be a nice gesture, just sayin'.
However, we may have to start a thread to see the diversity that will likely come from these seeds.
I'll get more packaged and available as I can.
Thanks Matt.
Happy growing,
Chef

Take your time! You don't want to rush things like this. That is, of course until my new month is up.

That is certainly not a requirement, but I'd love to have a new cultivar originate from the FlytrapCare Forum :D

There's more seeds here than I originally fathomed. In light of having an abundance of them, I have moved the FTS VFT OP seeds to tier 1 to increase availability.
Any member with one month of membership and 5 non-giveaway posts can now request these seeds. However, if you're a new grower, please read this before you request.

Now I'll work on getting more packs made up.
Happy growing,
