    Hi, i have had my dentae for about 4 months now. And it is getting pretty big its about 4 inches tall and it has 7 traps. I was getting curious about when my plant will produce its first flower.
    \"The plant grew. It\'s resoruces were taken away. He was forced to evolve. He struggled and pushed and grew, until finally one day it sprouted a trap. A bug landed in, he was a little to noisy and got himself locked in. The plant now had resoruces, and he grew happy as a VFT for years.\"

    I will propably be next Spring. Mine bloomed several months ago. If you look back through the posts in this forum you will see one started by me on if I should cut the bloom off or leave it. I have over 30 VFT's of various sizes in my bog and I would guess only the largest 5 bloomed.

    Most people cut the flower scape off as it takes a lot of plant energy to produce the flowers and then seeds. They arent very spectacular anyway. I cut mine off. But you might not see any flowers til next spring.
