    Hi
    this is the first time I have had a fork-leafed sundew send up a bud

    My question is should I cut it off
    I have heard that it has an exhausting effect on the plant
    could I get seeds if I left it on
    or could I make a cutting from the stock

    thanks for your help

    Hi Jeremiah,

    most (all?) binatas need another plant (different clone) to cross polinate with in order to produce seed. I have never gotten seed from mine, so I would cut off the flower stalk and save the plant energy.

    the flowers are worth seeing only once and only if you have never seen drosera flowers, they are pretty typical, white in color.

    Talking

    couldn't you guys save pollen from each others flowers and then send it to each other? Wouldn't that let you both get seeds on your plants second flowering? Just a thought...

    Well, I heard most forked sundews originate from one clone. Depends were people bought the plant, I suppose.

    I would let it grow untill it is just about to flower and cut it off...then lay it gently on the soil and put a pinch of soil over the two ends and see it you get a "Baby on a flower, Wondering..." tell us what you do and how it works out [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
