Most plant nurseries in Singapore carry VFTs though it's rare to find the more famous cultivars.

I went to World Farm at Bah Soon Pah Road last week and they still had VFTs for sale, among other carnivorous plants.

Thanks Daryl

Did you happened to see any red varieties?

Cheers

No Akai Ryu or any other cultivar, though this needs a lot of light to make the newer traps colour up similarly.

In the centre of Redhill market there is an air well (opening in the roof). I bought it from the store with the biggest selection of plants, near to the aquarium store. (There are 2 other stores selling fewer selection of plants on its left and right.)

Thank you!

I'll probably head that way later to take a look.

Thanks for the tip.
Finally got myself a pot of VFT.

Quick question

I see "baby" VFT squeezing out from the bigger plant. Should i repot and separate the 2? Or leave them alone (kinda messy now).
If i were to repot it, what are the steps or things to take note?

Thanks in advance.
