    Thanks . . .

    It currently looks like crap, having just emerged from dormancy. The pics were from last season -- and it was a 5.00 impulse buy from Orchard Supply Hardware in California, along with a few tomato plants. The largest traps on that "typical" were 4.4 cm (1.75") within three months.

    I have made poorer purchases . . .

    I cut off the smaller stalk and planted it in some sphagnum. The larger stalk has about 6 flower buds now. I kind of... glows. Sounds weird, but the stalk in my mind just has some type of bright radiance.

    And it flowered today! Two out of six buds have opened, so it was a very cool experience even if I don't get seeds. I'm keeping the one with the cut off stalk outside in the day and in at night now. The flower stalk is over a foot long... a compact bulb'll do that!

    I checked on the cut flower stalk that's in soaking peat. It has very small roots in all directions, but they're definitely there. Two of the buds fell off a day after they flowered, but the other four are still attached... When can I expect seed if pollination was successful? The one I cut the flower stalk off of has made two new small traps now that it has been outside in full sun. If the flowering plant sets seed, can I cut that stalk off too and try and grow it, or would it be absorbed by the plant? The stalk is probably 16 inches long but has stopped growing since it and the plant is now under a t8 light in addition to the windowsill.
