Sometimes you flytrap will shoot of plantlets, but I do not know why. Someone else can tell you that one. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Wow, I didn't know they did that TOO. I know about deviding themselves so you have two large plants but bitty babies on runners... thats cool. Mabey I should look under the moss in mine to see if I have any. It never flowers but is really healthy and big (usually has 15-22 adult traps at a time). Oh yah, the other day I was plucking moss to put in some new pots when I found a thingy.

    Yes a thingy. It's hard and green and lumpy and is just sticking out of the peat. It's oh I'd say about .5cm diamiter. Anyone know what this thing is? Is it a peace of my flytrap or the moss or what?

    Oh and I forgot. Yes the itsy bitsy size is normal, at least from seeds anyways. I think it is 7 years to maturity if I remember correctly.

    well thats good to know that thats normal i was just making sur I thought it was but you know

    as for that thingy were was it located

    my new plant is like right beside my other one

    I had noticed that it haddent been making any new traps on that spot for a wile well now I know why lol

    by the way just to let the rest of you know that arent involved in this discusion I am and do belive that it would be best in every ones intrest to leave the plantlet atached untill spring
    ie when it cones out of dormency and if it still doesn't look right then let it get healthy and larger so that it can properly support it's self.


    any way have a great day every one

    p.s. there are a lot of kyles that I know
