Ordered the 3 plant VFT Collection. Plants arrived in four days, and planted into long fiber sphagnum moss as directed.  The “Red Dragon” and B52 cultivars were robust and healthy with multiple upright and open traps.  The all green cultivar, not sure of the name, was weak with many closed traps and twisted leaves.  I sent a photo to VFT.com with a request to replace the weak plant.  In response I received an explanation as to why there was nothing wrong with the plant; my request for replacement was declined.  So, 2 out of 3.  One Star off for sending me a weak plant; second Star off for not replacing the plant. From Joel:



That is normal. It's NOT health related. The other 2 plants are more hardened off though. The top plant is actually the B52 and it is a more recent arrival but it's not unhealthy. The bottom plant is the Flexx clone.



VFTs make prostrate leaves most of the time. They go through cycles where they make erect leaves and some where they make in between erect and prostrate leaves but most of the time they go through cycles where they make prostrate leaves. It does not have anything to do with their health one way or another. The currently prostrate leaves will not bend upwards. They are prostrate because that is how they are making their leaves right now.



VFTs ordinarily make heart shaped prostrate leaves in the Springtime, tall erect leaves in the Summertime, thin short prostrate leaves in the Fall, and small heart shaped leaves with small traps on them during their Winter dormancy, if they have leaves out then. But when VFTs are propagated through tissue culture and have not experienced a Winter dormancy yet, they sometimes make the seasonal leaves out of their correct season till they have their first Winter dormancy and then make them in sync with the correct season from then on. Prostrate Spring leaves sometimes curl downward a little in transit too. But this and the leaves being prostrate does not have anything to do with their health one way or another. This is also covered in your FAQ sheet.



In case you are wondering why these type of plants grow prostrate leaves and traps, it is so they can catch more bugs. Prostrate leaves and traps catch both flying and crawling insects. Erect leaves with traps up in the air catch only flying bugs. Guess which one winds up catching more bugs?

Ordered Drosera Binata. Received plant in four days. Planted in long fiber sphagnum as directed. The plant initially lost two mature leaves but, quickly replaced them with new. It is a fruit fly graveyard, which I love. I am tempted to order more of these sundews. Beautiful plant.

Thanks! They arrived today and look great. Will get distilled water in the morning and get everything set up. Thanks again! Fantastic! We've set them up and got an indoor plant light that we'll also use because we don't get a lot of sun in the house. My son is so excited to have these. Thanks for the extra! Some photos...

Purchased a B52 VFT as a hobby and out of childhood interest. Upon receipt, the plant was in excellent condition, with very thorough instructions. My plant is thriving, eating flies, and growing! I would recommend purchasing one without worry, as the customer service is outstanding!
