    What do you do with flower stalks?

    Once in awhile I receive a sundew with a flower stalk. Do you cut it off to save energy or hope that the stalk will continue to develop? I'm not having any luck with the continued development.

    I always throw them in water although I haven't seen anything sprout, I'm told that you can sometimes get plants regenerating on them.

    I don't have much experience with dews. That said, it makes sense to cut off the stalk of any plant that one has recently acquired to allow for good ole' acclimation. Effort and energy will go into the foliage and the plant itself instead of being particaned into the flower stalk. Although, I don't know how effective it can be.

    I like the flowers, so I let them go until the seed pods form.

    for my binatas, i let them flower, and after they're done in a couple weeks, i cut up the stalks and put them in the water.
    they sprout up plantlets that take off like crazy---2x faster than normal leaf cuttings.
    later,
