    If you want to see what the flowers look like or to try to get seed, then let it bloom. Don't be suprised though if your plants growth slows down for a while. Flowering uses up a lot of a VFTs energy. Your VFT shouldn't die if it's healthy, however.

    After the flower stalk gets to be a few inches tall the damage is already done so you might as well let it flower. I would guess feeding it would help it recover and if it is very healthy then it should survive after flowering, but look forward to slow growth for several months.

    Sounds like you want it to bloom and your plant is healthy. I'd say let it bloom. Last year I let many plants bloom and there were no ill effects. Yeah like BCK said, growth will slow down. For me, no traps form during blooming and seed production. It'll take about a month for the plant to come back strong. But trust me your plant WILL come back strong.

    Here's a shot



    This plant is really strong; it just kept making monster traps during flowering. It didn't cluster up and stayed a single bulb. Cool huh? A knowledable friend of mine (Brad on CPUK) said that flowering could make your plant cluster, make your plant's growth momentarily freeze, or doesn't affect growth whatsoever, depending on how your plant feels. I also remember him saying there's no avoiding it, once the flower spike initiated growth, your plant will be subjected to the flowering effects of clustering or not clustering or growing right on strong. Ok well I'll stop talking but hope this assure's that your plant won't die.
