Anyone have evidence/experience to confirm that it'll be interesting to pollinate these?
Or should I just hack off the flower stalk and try for stem propagation.
I mean, of course it would be interesting. It's VFTs. But collectively have we learned that seeds from interesting cultivars usually create unremarkable green typicals unless you embark on a multi-generation breeding program?
I have kept my smaller VFTs in milder dormancy this winter (14 hours light, barely damp, temps 55–68F), and almost all are sending up flower stems. It's a mix of typicals with different neat features, including sawteeth with highly arched traps; reds; large traps; magenta teeth; etc. I'm cross/self pollinating some of these or making stalk cuttings.
