    Filiformis blooming twice in a year?

    I have a medium sized thread leaf sundew that flowered in June, producing these:
    Yesterday I noticed what looked like another flower stalk coming up. Is this normal, or is mine doing something odd?

    My filiformis "Florida red" have flowered about 3-4 times so far, I don't think it is that unusual, if a plant has the energy to flower again it probably will.

    Okay then. Mine's a Florida giant version, so I guess it makes sense that it would bloom more than once. This also explains why the leaves it produced recently were smaller. Shame they only flower for a few hours a day though.

    All my filiformis grew 3 flower stalks in quick succession. On the other hand, my Pinguicula primuliflora sent up 4 flowers earlier in the year and is now suddenly starting a 5th. I suppose it happens.

    I should mention that there were three stalks earlier at the same time like nimbulan mentioned, and this one is the fourth. I want to hear about the butterwort though. Seems like you can get a lot of seeds from that if it's fertile.

    Correction: 5 earlier this year, and a 6th starting now. Of the 2 pods that have dried, however, I couldn't find any seeds. The plant may not be self-fertile.

    I've had D. filiformis in almost constant blooming/seed production since May. One pot is from NC, one's from NJ, some are FL Red. I think that if they're eating well and have access to bright sun, they'll pump out seeds constantly.
