    Not to belabor a technicality, but perhaps a few quotes are in order:

    http://www.sarracenia.com/faq/faq3700.html
    "False vivipary: Some plants will produce mutated flowers. Instead of normal flowers, the plant makes little plantlets on the flower stalk! This is commonly (and erroneously) called vegetative apomixis. The plantlets can be rooted (with care) and make new plants!"

    http://www.sarracenia.com/faq/faq1620.html
    "Occasionally, some carnivorous plants produce plantlets on their flower stalks. This strange behavior is called 'false vivipary' by those botanists who are nerdy enough to be able to rattle off the difference between 'pubescent' and 'puberulent.' "

    Oh, I bet 'vegitative apomixis' is what you call it when the flower head hits the soil and roots then. That would make sence with the latin.

    FlytrapGurl - I did not say the pic I posted was my plant !

    Read my post more carefully and I said:

    I believe that the photo is Dean Cook's
    http://www.*************/newlook....pomixis
    which includes the misspelling 'vegitative'
