    How old is your VFT? Mine won't flower even though it looks too healthy to beat any other...plus if it keeps increasing its trap size its next prey wil be my dog. And also I WANT SEEDS Waaaaahhhhh...I thought 4 year old VFTs flower usually in a yearly cycle? Since mine is not undergoing dormancy (tropical weather) then I expect it to flower even more regularly, maybe the seller cut off the flower stalk or got the seeds b4 it came to me, or both...

    Try shining a torch in it and see if you can spot a shine off the surface of the seeds (and use a magnifying glass if you want to better close up your view) and if your eyes are old and withered like some of us here *nudge nudge*I've heard that they're shiny and packed in a circular lattice or cylinder like structure (there was a pic on this forum somewhere, just can't seem to find it now). Use your fingers to pop them out with a paper or tissue barrier in front to catch any flying seed, I've heard that they can fly quite far (only 'bout a metre or two) and you won't eb able to intercept or find it ater that, believe me...

    Your flowers might be darkening from the black colour of the seeds inside, or just...darkening...I mean withering, you see... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]
