My two flytraps started growing stalks a few weeks ago (in the dead of winter) so I figured it was their way of telling me they wanted to come out of dormancy. So I moved them to a warmer location in my apartment and started increasing the length of light. (I have my light on a timer.)
As soon as the flower stalks were about an inch high, I cut them off. Now, it appears that both of them are trying again and sending up another stalk. Is this normal? Should I cut them off as usual? Is it possible I did it wrong the first time? I just used a pair of scissors and trimmed as close to the bottom as possible.
The past two seasons I let the plants flower... That was before I found this forum and learned that this is bad for the plant! Each time they sent up only one stalk. Where is the second one coming from? Although they have done well each year, so I am interested to see what happens this year without the stalks.
