    I have bought quite a small venus flytrap - it has eight rather large traps a loads of tiny ones - 6 of them are digesting - I'm a bit worried that I'll over feed it! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] Also there was a flower stalk and I cut it off because I read on a different site it indangers the plant! If U wanna know how just ask! Basically I'm just introducing myself [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] and I'd like to make friends! I'm quite young though - I don't know why I told U that! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]
    Anyway what I wanted to say was....well......HI! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    Hi lil flytrap,

    [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] !!!!!!!!WELCOME TO THE FORUMS!!!!!!!!!!!!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Hehe, wow that is fun.

    Congratulations on your first (and by far not the last) venus flytrap. normally you would feed one trap at a time, and not usually continuously. The traps only really open and close a certain number of times before they cease to function.

    Cutting off the flower stalk is usually a good idea if your plant isn't in tip top condition. From the sounds of it, if it is small, you'd most likely want the vft to concentrate on the leaves and traps rather than the flower so it gets bigger faster, and doesn't waste the energy.

    Being young doesn't matter here at all, just the love for the plants. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]
