    My ping. primuliflora is growing a small, green flower stalk or something. I can try to get a picture up sometime, but for now, it is roundish, and I think it is pointed at the top, with overlap on the sides. I'm sure someone with knowledge of pings knows what this is from experience, but since this is my first and only butterwort that i got not long ago, I don't know. Any ideas?

    Yeah, you're getting a flower! That's half the fun on pings, so congrats! Sometimes they kind of abort and shrivel up and die, so don't be too disappointed if that happens. Incidentally, on my particular primuliflora, the stalks catch gnats considerably better than the leaves do!

    I have tried selfing primuliflora, but only a few seeds were produced and I could not get any to germinate. This plant self-propagates by forming plantlets on the ends of the leaves.
