    I've found that they seem to appreciate cooler temps than my other dews.

    Also, don't cut the runner until the new plant gets fairly decent sized. It takes much longer if you cut it too soon.

    Anyone actually cut the flower stalk off and lay it on media for the plantlet to sprout?

    Or must the flower stalk remain on the plant?

    I have them, along with most of my sundews on a grow rack, by the sliding windows, under a Grolite. They get ~15 hours of light. Room temp, LFS, watered every few days.

    I plant to allow the plantlets to establish themselves in pots of my choice, without severing anything.

    wild bill touched on your question a bit, but i'll answer it directly.

    if you cut the flower stalk, the stalk will decay quicker and the plantlet will not grow as fast/as big compared to uncut flower stalk w/ plantlet on it.
    if the nutrients are still flowing through an attached flower stalk, naturally the plantlet will grow taller, better, faster, stronger (sorry i had to add that in ).

    Take care,
    Aaron

    Earlier in the summer I just curled the aged flower stalks with plantlets around in a semicircle and made sure they were touching the soil media substrate and now 3 months later they are the size of the original mother plant. Cool pix Jim.
