    So I'm brand new to caring for VFTs and I didn't know that letting it flower might jeapordize a plant that is in less-than-prime condition. I live in Seattle where the lack of light and dry indoor conditions certainly present a challenge... however the flowers are quite beautiful so I thought I'd put up a few pics!

    Here are the buds the morning the first flower opened:


    And here's the flower:


    Here's the rest of the plant -- it seems pretty happy so far. If the stress of flowering and seed production were to tax it, at what stage would I expect it to show distress?

    They are pretty, but they're small and short-lived compared to the traps. Had I known the downside of allowing it to flower, I would have trimmed that sucker in favor of more plant growth throughout the warm season.

    Live and learn... I just hope the plant lives! So far it seems pretty happy.

    The Plant looks great. Why don't you just leave the whole plant outside? I would think that it would be perfect since the Humidity is constantly high and there isn't too little or too much light.

    Some store person told me that vft's flower can be 8 different colors... true or false? so far I've only ever seen white.

    As far as I know, VFT flowers come in white, white, or white. I have never heard of a VFT flower being anything but one of those three colors [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] .

    Ps.your plants look healhy enough to flower but since I have no experience in this I suggets you go ask an expert (eg. D.muscipula - yes that's his real name) [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    You can always tie-dye them or do like one kid did - paint faces on them. As I recall, that topic had a pretty good ride on the forums.
