    Flowering a bit late?

    So my pot of flytraps have already sent up flower stalks much earlier this summer, which I proceeded to cut due to them being grown indoors. Now, another one is just now sending up a flower stalk.

    To the experts here... isn't it a bit late to be doing this?

    Mine are doing the same thing. I let one from last month grow, but cut the ones from this month off in case it might make it too weak for winter. Seems kind of odd to me too.

    If you want you can cut off the flower stalks and slice them up into little 1"ish bits and use them as cuttings to grow more flytraps. I have one that's flowering now too for some odd reason and I'm gonna let the flower stalk grow a few inches and try this.

    Interesting! So I cut them into bits...then do I just sprinkle them ontop the dirt or cover them with a little dirt? That would be cool! ...I could give one to my mom!

    From what I was reading you just stick them in the soil upright. Sorta like a toothpick in a sandwich, but you don't need to stick it in too deep.
