|the plant flowering I've had since Jan. I have to admit that the plant is paying for it, I asked Peter myself (You know, the Savage Garden author) and he told me they usually flower in spring, and he told me to clip the flower stalk off. But I was so exited! I wanted (what I'm going to call them), "late year seeds" ! and the plant dosent look so well. It could be going into dormancy,or it could be dying. anyone know? Thanks.|

It's probably just going dormant. *Believe me, a dead VFT is very obviously dead, they turn black and get slime all over and start to smell.
EDIT: sorry Darcie those typos were gettin to me haha I just had to fix them [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]
There is no item greater in value than life, for without life value would cease to exist.
My Grow List
I now have three flowers! Two on one, but another bud that has not flowered,and one on another, with 2 more buds!
I will try to post the pic tonight!

Did your vft grow one stalk at a time? The reason I ask is because one of mine is flowering as I've mentioned in a similar post. Only one stalk so far. I suppose then it will start to grow more stalks soon?
I would be interested in the pollinating question myself. I may want to get some seeds out of this deal! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
To live we must learn to forgive.
Two plants flowering, 1 flower stalk on each. Is your flytrap still flowering? You might get another stalk

from my experience its best to cut the bloom off as soon as you see it,because when they bloom the arent that pretty to look as as well.and i have let some bloom in the past and they have died. just a fyi to all of you... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]
