    Wow!
    That plant must be very healthy to have decided to flower so young. It must also have something wrong with its genetics too, in my opinion. I don't mean it in a bad way, it must just have missed out on its share of the genes that tell it when it's old enough to flower!

    Very cool, will be interesting to see if it will produce fertile seeds at such a young age.

    kath, usually young flowering is cause by unhealthy conditions, it probable just wants to pass on its traits before it dies.

    It does seem healthy - but miniature and not even a year old.

    Of maybe 150 VFT seedings of various sorts, about 7 sent up flower stalks. This was the only individual that actually went full term and opened a flower. Most with the flower stalks were from the Bigmouth open pollinated batch of seeds. A number of those also had unique variation, I have around five that have all red coloration like a VFT red dragon.

    As long as it doesn't have to produce seeds, it should be fine to flower.

    There is a pygmy VFT in circulation that produces a single flower on a tiny plant.
