    Funky Flowers

    "Fang"
    This stalk started coming up beginning of winter, stalled and started growing again a few weeks ago. I thought the leaves looked funky.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    That's crazy. They appear to have a nutrient deficiency pattern too--dark green center with marginal chlorosis and necrotic leaf tips. Same for the tiny leaflets on the stalk. I've seen axillary plantlets on VFTs but never ever a second flower stalk shooting out of the plantlet!!

    That's really weird. I wonder what might have caused something like this?

    Ok, I definitely can't top the funky behavior in the picture above, but I do have another question about flowering. Each VFT only puts out a single flower stalk, correct? Last year I bought a couple VFT's, and this year, it looks like one of the plants is sending up a double flower stalk. Since I am fairly new at this, I am assuming that there are actually 2 plants in this pot right next to each other, and each is sending up its own flower? I have examined the traps & might be able to convince myself that there are 2 different sizes, but I wondered if anyone had seen this and could tell me different.

    And yes, I have read all the info about possible death to the plant by letting it flower, but I have a number of other VFT plants & I figure, what the heck, let's live dangerously ... the worst that could happen? It would give me an excuse to buy a couple more plants ;-)
