    With my Dionaea, I clip the flower stalk off. Flowering takes a lot out of a fly trap and if it is not healthy to begin with it may die once it is done flowering. It is really hard on the plant.
    Some growers let their VFts flower and the plants do fine but why risk it?

    Hope this helps!

    Yes, cut the flower off at the base trying to get as much of it as you can without harming your plant. Please be very careful as you do not want to cut or harm the rhizome in any way.

    there's nothing to it. Just snip off what you can safely and nip the rest as it emerges later. Don't get too carried away.

    it's from the same plant, you just cut off the previous stalk too soon wich gave the plant the impuls to give it another go. Wait untill the stalk is atleast 5 cm long before cutting it off and the chance of it making another one will decrease
