    No, Losfreddy, you do not need to cut the stalk. The plant will be fine. The only problem is, you may get hundreds of seedlings all over the place! This plant can quickly become a weed if left to flower continuously.

    Also flowering weakens the plant although the blooms are quite pretty.

    A healthy bug chomping D. capensis should be able to take it no problem though.

    Does the initial development of the flower stalk look something like a light green caterpillar or pipe cleaner? That's what is developing and looking different than the endless leaves that preceded it.

    That sounds like a pretty good description of the way the flower stalk i have now developed. I couldnt figure out what it was till i saw all of the small little round things at the end. The big difference between leaves and a flower stalk i noticed was that the stalk was hairy all the way around and right up to the base, unlike leaves You should have a bunch of flowers soon, but good luck seeing them open they only stay open for a few hours. Out of 12 on my plant now i saw 1 open
