    At least I think it is. Much to my surprise, my baby spatulata sundew came out of its relative dormancy and now I've got a very thin but somewhat long thing stemming out of the center, and definetely looks different from the normal leaves.

    My question is, is it okay to let it bloom, or should I cut it off before the flower bit develops? Will the small size and youth of the plant allow it to sustain a flower, or will it kill it off?
    Some random words.

    Depends, if it is a easy to grow plant like spat then its most likely fine. I've had lots of immature plants flower successfully including a baby vft. Sadly it was the only one flowering and didn't make any seeds [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]

    I haven't had a baby plant flower before, but i'd assume that when they are young, it may exhaust them too much, and when they are older it is okay to let them flower.
    Update: Parents convinced to allow me to keep greenhouse heated over winter. Most species will not be lost. Too lazy to update growlist.
