    Flower stalk in seedlings this young? (D. intermedia)

    This is happening in the 2 largest seedlings, and it seems to be a flower stalk coming up. Is this normal to happen in 3 month old seedlings? These days have been quite hot, don't if this help to explain.

    Beats me. My 3-4 month old Drosera spatulata seedlings flowered too. I guess I should take some more pictures.

    I just noticed one of my Sarracenia leucophylla is putting up another flower stalk even though it flowered in March/April.

    my intermedia bloomed early this year too....they germinated just at the end of June.... no harm done so far. the smallest that bloomed was about a half inch across and had a single lone flower on it. the biggest now has several stalks, with many blooms, and many fat seed pods

    maybe it's the leucophyla's screwing everything up!

    my leucophyla flowered twice this year too (march/august), and the venusta's in it's pots (~ 3 months old) all flowered!

    no harm done-but it was kinda wierd!

    Could it just be D. intermedia "Cuba"? Aren't they smaller?
