    Thanks for reminding me why I'm proud to be an American. Before the rant becomes "where are the WMD's", someone lock the thread. Isn't this "Venus Flytrap (Dionaea ) Care Information & Tips"?
    I'm still living off the corpse of the old world.

My only concern is that a store bought VFT's that flower soon thereafter, are potentially set up to drain the plant of its energy - and thus die shortly thereafter. You may want to strongly consider cutting the flower stalk and have the plant, as well as the Sarras be outside. Plants that go through a dormancy period need lots of direct sunshine and a good few months of rest, in order to do well and flower the following year. I bought a VFT and put it in a terrarium. It flowered and promptly died. Food for thought.
    Thanks I was wondering what I should do about the flower stalk, as I read about them dieing staight after flowering, should I cut it now

    I going try and see if I can get it outside, are garden does'nt get much sunlight. Will see what I can do.

    The trouble with you know-it-all Americans is that assume too much. Why do you think I'm quoting you? Can't you read? Do you really want your grammar and spelling criticised? I think not. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]
    This is my thread, about my plant, please don't turn it into something else.

    Why do I think you are quoting me??
    hmmmm..perhaps because you said:

    Perhaps English isnt your native language??
    I dont know why you dont understand your own words.

    normally when someone says "maybe he/she would take the time to dissect his/her posting. " and you use an actual name of the person who should be doing that dissecting, in this case, my name, that pretty much means you are quoting that person directly..there really isnt any room for misunderstanding there.
    you were very clear about who were quoting.
    thats why I thought you were quoting me..because you SAID you were!

    I know it's hard to snip a flower off one's first VFT, but it's like putting off short run and short lived fun, for the real deal when it has a legitimate opportunity to do well.

    You gotta check Barry Rice's CP FAQ. He has a delightful, sarcastic sense of humour and he comes right out and says, "Now that you've seen it - cut it off!"

    Here's the link:

    FAQ

    But don't read the section about feeding dead skin tissue to the VFT, as an experiment. Talk about grossout factor...

    Vixen,
    you are right...this thread has pretty much been ruined.
    If I were you, I would simply abandon this thread and just start a new one..
    then hopefully the new thread will remain troll-free.

    Vixen does not have to abandon this thread. The only ones who should are those who fail to stay on topic. You all have made your point.

    Nice job with the plants Vixen, and thanks for sharing the pics! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
    My chicken legs taste like chicken--only less meaty.
