    Paul, welcome to the forums. I'm gonna move this topic to the VFT discussion where the resident experts can field your question.

    no worries!

    You mean that the new plants that are forming on the side of the mother plant are flat and round?

    If so, I have noticed that on some of mine. I have attempted to separate them, because I thought they were something else, and then I realized that they were attached to the plant.

    I would wait and let them grow bigger and then you can separate them off the mother plant. You're a daddy!!

    Only plants around a year old flower. I haven't never had a baby VFT to put out a flower.

    The ones that are made here are about 1-2 yrs old out of TC ( the process takes 9 months ).

    Hope this helps some, if not, then I got to here me talk [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    just kidding!

    Hello Paul

    Welcome to the forums!

    Probably your new shoot is a flower stalk. The flower stems have a kinda round ball on the end instead of the typical "half moon" shape. Most people cut them off as flowering can weaken your plant. The flowers arent all that attractive. Just nip it at the base and let your plants keep growing [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Come back to the forums often!
