    My D.Aliciae flowered last week and its starting to form the buds...I was wondering if it needed more sunlight or anything new now that its flowering.Wind or cold wont be a problem right? It only gets down to 50's at the most.

    If it's flowering what it's really doing is saying "these growing conditions are great keep them up" (imagine if life were that simple, the plant told you what it wanted). Anyway i'd keep them the same if I were you. Congrats on the flower

    I'm going to agree with Zac on this one. If your plant is flowering that means it's really enjoying your conditions, so don't change anything. Keep up the good work!

    Are you sure that's true? Cause if they flower when stressed, they'd just make themselves more stressed, since they're using more energy.

    Yeah, some try a last ditch effort to produce seed and reproduce before cashing in. But I don't think that is the case here.

    Wow, I honestly never knew that. Maybe that's why so many of my first Venus Flytraps flowered [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Um, just what are your growing conditions - lighting, soil, temps...? I've got perfectly reddened, 1.5 year old colony, that produce lotsa plantlets -n but have no inclination to flower.
