    It's a flower stalk, looks normal to me.

    Clip it off or let it blossom. If you let it blossom and go to seed you may end up with more D. capensis than you can possibly imagine depending on available planting area.

    The benefits of clipping it is that you won't end up with billions and billions of seeds and D. capensis.

    The cons of clipping it is that you won't end up with billions and billions of seeds and D. capensis.

    Also if you clip it you won't get the chance to see Drosera capensis flowers with your own eyes. They are rather pretty looking flowers as Drosera flowers go.

    You can always clip it after it flowers and before the seed pods ripen.

    just curious as mine has a flower stalk about 12" tall right now. at what point am I in danger of seed drop? and what are the signs. I'd like to harvest the seed if possible

    pro: when flowering, capensis usually gets weak. smaller leaves, slowed growth. but after flowering the plant makes a full recovery.
