    ok, i'm new to CPs. I bought a venus flytrap a few months ago, it already had tall flower stalks, so I let the stalk grow and flower. I now know that I shouldn't have let it flower, the stalk now has a large green sphere at the end of it which has little leaves growing out of it, is that a bulb? Should I cut it off and plant it? Thanks for any information

    I've never let a VFT flower so I can't help you too much. It sounds like that small sphere is the flower getting ready to bloom (though I could be wrong). Cutting the stalk once it's this far won't help, the plant's energy has already been spent so you might as well enjoy the flower.

    Maybe these will help you some more:

    Best of luck.

    Nicholas is right, it's too late to cut it off now. You might as well enjoy the flower. The flower will cause the plant to grow really slow for awhile.

    Enjoy the flower. It will not hurt the plant. You might even experiment with pollinating the flowers to produce seeds and then plant the seed to make baby VFTs. Check out the FAQ at
