I'm still saying that I think this is something else, not a VFT flower stalk. VFT stalk ends, in my experience, aren't smooth and round like that.
Example of a stalk I cut from my "Destruction".

I definitely don't have another plant to pollinate it with. I'm just getting started growing from seed this year & thought if I had a chance to see a VFT flower early, then I was going to let it grow out just to see what it looks like. No plans for this flower other than observation & identification.

VFTs can, I believe, be self-pollinated by a deft hand with a paintbrush. I'm not sure that you actually need two plants.

Cute little thing, and stubborn! Look at it go.
