    Crappy pic from my iPod
    It's like four green balls
    The thing is comming off of the growth point, I thought flowers come up next to the plant

    My guess is a flower stalk. The 4 green balls should be flower pods.


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com

    Should I leave it on?
    Would it make good seeds if selfed?
    Is the stalk thick enough for cuttings?

    Only if you want seeds.
    I don't see why it wouldn't make fertile seeds.
    Dunno.. never propagated from stalk cuttings.

    It won't hurt it to let it flower, intermedia is very robust. The scapes look like they're coming from the bottom of the plant because they form a hook at the bottom.

    Is that normal?
    The stalk is still as short as the leaves
