    Why you shouldn't let your VFT flower -

    When I bought this 'Cupped Trap' it had a flower stalk, which let grow a week or two as I acclimatized the plant to my growing conditions. I clipped the stalk off and shortly after another stalk started to develop (see photo 1). I let that grow a few weeks as I wanted the plant material for Tissue Culture. Note the stunted growth of the leaves - no traps!

    Since I clipped the second stalk leaf growth appears to be returning to normal - cupped traps that is.






    First stalk, soon after I bought it - note the 'normal' cups

    Just the one, back in January I think. I saw the flower stalk and deformed looking leaves and almost passed it by. It was fogged up and it was at night so it was kind of dark in the covered nursery section. I didn't believe my eyes and took it into the store for better lighting. I still didn't believe it even when I got home.

    I've seen 'Dente' at Lowes - Gublers again. I think they just resell AgriStarts III plants.

    I guess it pays to look closely at the VFTs in HD, Wally's or whatever.

    The darn thing is putting up another flower stalk. That's number three since Jan/Feb. If it puts out another one after I clip this one I think I'll just let it flower - maybe that will get it out if it's system - or kill the plant!

    Very interesting, one wonders if there was a cup fly trap variety that somehow got into their stock, or if this is a chance mutation that occurred from TC?!

    In any case, what a fun find!
    I too like to peruse the VFT's stock at my local nurseries, looking for VFT's that might be different. I just picked up one that i thought had fairly large traps, that were bigger than the rest. It was from Nurseryman's Exchange, a wholesaler from California.

    I think it just got mixed up in the batch somehow at AgriStarts III. AgriStarts III hasn't been distributing these for sometime from what I gather from Steve Stewart on the ICPS forums.

    I've found some nice VFTs from Nurserymans' Exchange at OSH and Home Depot - the one I selected for big traps has about 1.5 inch traps. I suspect they resell AgriStarts III too.
