    I just noticed the beginning of a flower stalk coming out of my vft. Since I don't think I could keep it alive if it flowers, how long should I wait to cut the stalk?

    Are you doing the FTG experiment?

    i usually cut them as soon as i see them. they grow straight up. but traps are curled. soo cut the striaght ones when there small that way it doesn't waste any energy

    I got a sawtooth from Carolina Carnivorous Gardens with a flower stalk about 6 inches high, I decided to see what would happen, I left it alone, and it started dying so i cut it off. It's been doing good so far. But the flower stalk is growing back

    Personally, I let mine flower unless I just got them. If you want to play it safe, cut the stalk. But one day I'm going to grow a VFT from seed.

    If I'm lucky I should have a bunch of seeds this year.
