    Unhappy

    I just moved my P. Primuliflora from my temperate terrarium to my tropical terrarium and that triggered it to flower. But for some strange reason the flower is opening on a stalk only 1cm high. Is there a reason for this and I just don't know it yet or is there something wrong with my plant. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]

    Thanks,

    Mine did not open until it hit its full height of roughly 4 to 5 inches. And ive got a second on its way up.

    Good, I was worried that my first butterwort flower wouldn't open or something.
