Last early fall a friend gave me some vft seeds and I sewed them. I thought that one of the seedlings was doing exceptionally well, until i found out it was absolutely not a vft. Now I’m wondering, a) what on earth is that big plant (its done well in vft conditions ie. no nutrients and high humidity) and b) are the little plants next to it actual vfts? I have many more of those little ones growing. Thanks everyone :)

No idea that the plants in the photo are, but I don't see any sign of carnivorous plants in the pots.

None are venus flytraps. Flytraps look like flytraps from the moment they sprout.

I'm sorry to say this and it's really bad news but you've been scammed, sorry bud! Vfts have white "teeth" and they would of already had traps if they were that size! Sorry that happened to you, scammers are posting more and more scams and fake products from China! eBay is also a scammer hide out! Only get them from fts (flytrap store) and places that are actual websites that only sell carnivorous plants

Man, that’s really lame. Thank you for the information :) . On the bright side, over the last 6 months of growing these imposters I’ve learned a lot about how to take care of REAL vft!

That's a good positive spin on things! Now you're ready to actually get a REAL Venus flytrap!
