    my d. fili ssp fili has 3 flower stalks on it now and it blooms almost every day or so . The plant had nice long leaves on it but as soon as it flowered the leaves were drying up and its not really growing any new ones .just keeps on flowering.

    My D. Binita has been flowering like crazy ever since they've been growing outside. I cut all the stalks off the smaller plants, and only leave one on the bigger plants. With only one stalk growing the plant isn't growing much and the forked form has reverted back to their immature t form.
    Luckily I have to forms of Binita, one T form and one forked form and they both are flowering at the same time, it looks like I will have 1000's of seeds soon... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]
    They can't be self pollinated though so it'll be an interesting cross of plant seeds.
    I thought you people where \"Plant Geeks\", Look at me Now...

    carnivorkid, it looks like your filiformis ssp. filiformis might be flowering itself to death, or close to it. I've had poor luck with ssp. filiformis in particular, so I can't tell you how to get it back up to snuff other than pruning back the flowerstalks. I personally would collect the seeds like you are planning and hope for the best. Oh, if its not catching its own prey, give it crushed freezedried bloodworms to help it out.

    just my 2 cents worth,
