Despite a very cold winter, the conditions on my window-sill have not changed much (maybe slightly colder). All that happened to my VFT was it lost its red colour on the traps, and they stopped growing up, and just grew along the ground. It more than doubled its number of traps before winter, and then most of them went black and I removed them.
So then it got to the end of February and I found the first fly I've seen in a long time, so I caught it and fed my VFT. Now I wake up this morning and a long stem has shot up, and I am certain it is trying to flower, since it does not look like a trap (more like a bud) and it goes straight up in the middle.
My questions are, is this normal, or should I have put my VFT in the freezer or something. And should I cut the stem now (I don't want seeds, and I don't want to jeopardize my plant). I'm scared of cutting anything that isn't dead [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]
