    Yeah, mine sent up a flower stalk about 1.5-2 weeks ago, then it sent up another one, and I came home today to find it blooming [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
    Pretty pink flowers.
    I dont know why its blooming though... it looks terrible, no color or anything.

    Let's just say this...you should be more worried about what you can do to STOP the flowering process. Feeding them will only encourage non-stop reproduction. If that's what you want, then by all means, feed them [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    With or without food, D. spatulata is a flowering machine.

    Ahhh I see the invasion has begun [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
    Don't worry if you're not real quick to collect seed you'll have plants popping up every where. There is a good thread above pinned by our own Tamlin about collecting seed. I would read his heed on seed otherwise spat will become a weed.
    I always suspect everything could be a trap... thats why I'm still alive
