    a pure guess would be yes you can as the plantlets start from only the bottom portion ,so i have not tried it myself but cannot see why not,i cut theses stalks off when they were only 2inch long so they didn't sap the strength of the plant too much

    My flytrap's just started to flower and I'm debating whether to let it grow or cut it off. I've had it for two months now and it's making large traps with good color, so that leads me to think it should be okay.

    If your plant has traits you like you will get an identical plantlet from the flower stalk that will grow faster than seedgrown(so i am told) but seedgrown variation may be prefered

    Thing is, it doesn't HAVE any traits out of the ordinary, other than the infamous Curved-Leaf Syndrome, and it's recovering from that too. So, really, I don't think there's anything noteworthy about my plant.

    EDIT: Today I picked up some NOTEWORTHY FLYTRAPS! I might do the flower-stalk-plant-process with my new plants, particularly my now flowering "Dentate Traps".
