    flower stalk plantlets

    i took a couple of fower stalks earlier in spring and have some very tiny plants appear,should i put them under my lights and force them through dormancy as they are so small?

    You could do that or allow them to go through dormancy with the others. I generally treat them like any of the other flytraps . . .

    @corky: yes. that works. usually young plants are capable of skipping dormancy for the first couple years of their lives.

    Mine still are not showing anything on the surface so I decided to pull them out but to my surprise when I did the first one two long roots came out with it. I got really giddy and then dug another hole and stuck it back in the ground.

    Very nice. I cut mine off in June according to my calendar. I have two in the pot. They are both Dente.
