After an experimental overwinter in the cold basement windowsill, my VFT is growing strong! Is this a future flower?

So, should I risk letting it flower? My kids are excited to see it, but they wouldn’t want to let the plant die. These plants are part of science class for them.

Edit: I’ve decided to cut it off. There will be plenty of other flowers to dissect soon with spring bulbs popping up!
