    If you do decide to make it seed - Good Luck - Hope it goes good and then also I hope the seedlings will grow well too! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Alright, you win. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] But I think you would benifit more with letting it flower and set seed; years of enjoyment of watching the seed sprout, grow, and grow, untill they themselves flower!

    Keep it! It will flower soon enough.

    When I first got mine (last year) each plant grew a single flower stalk. But this year, each one is already producing about 3 stalks!!!

    I cut my flower stalks. Never had them produce any additional ones. I don't need/want seeds and I'd rather the plant's energies go towards growing traps.

    Just my 2 cents. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    I snipped mine off as soon as I saw them and NEVER had
    one pop up in it's place. That's not to say that it never would happen.

    Some day I WILL let mine flower, just for the experience, but I think for the benefit of new people, I feel the best advice would be side on caution and advise to snip them off; or at least to warn them of Not snipping them off. not us having all of the pertinent information required to make an accurate assumption of whether or not their plant is in ideal conditions, etc.

    I feel this would be best.

    If Pacino isn't confused by now; at least Pacino is very informed. That's what I like about this forum; debate is VERY HEALTHY and educational; and I love everyone here and have learned much from Spektabilis and Darcie, etc.

    p.s to Darcie : I remember that slamming you took.

    To Spektabilis;

    I am interested in growing from seed for the experience that you described; I too feel it would be rewarding; albeit slow.

    Do you need to freeze the seeds before planting? If so, for how long. I'm thinking on trading some Sensitive Plant seeds (Mimosa Pudica) for some VFT seeds in the trading post.

    no, but a little stratifacation process is recomended. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] All you do is sow them in a 50/50 peat/sand mix, and stick the pot in the fridge. 3 weeks later take put the pot and stick it in bright light and in warm conditions, you'll get seedlings in about 3 weeks.
