    my u. sandersonni always flowers with the stalks pointing towards where there is the most ligt , my vfts are red on 1 side , green on the other , my suaromatum venosum always leanes to where there is lots of light . i think it just mean that it need more sun or light so except of turning them aroung alot which gets quite annoying and tiresome , try moving them to a place where the sun shines right down on them .

    One way to keep plants growing straight in a window is to turn them daily to prevent them from leaning towards the light and always being lop sided. By turning the plants each day, the side that has moved toward the light the previous day is now facing away from the window and the plant slowly moves/grows back towards the window. You will want to do either 1/4 turns or 1/3 turns each day, or possibly even turn it twice in one day to prevent the plant from leaning too much.

    I hope this helps. I do this with a couple of my Sarracenia that I have indoors.

    Careful where you crawl, it might be a trap!
