    is it normal for a vft to try and flower twice in a short
    space of time? :o

    im asking this becuse its only a small plant and was half dead when i got it 2 days ago.... :o
    i think it WOULD kill it if it was to flower.

    anyone?

    Coma,
    Since your plant is small, I would probably cut the flower off. Making the plant to produce flowers causes the plant to waste energy. If all the ``energy'' of the plant is gone, it will slowly lead to death.

    I'm not quite sure if it is not normal or not. But my brother (hplants03) had a VFT (common) and it kept on flowering even out of spring time. There were around 2 stems per plant sometimes even three stems and their were five plants in a three inch plant. NO JOKE!!!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Coma, what type of VFT do you have?

    It's not uncommon for them to flower twice or during strange times of the year.
