I waited until the flower stalks were about a foot tall before harvesting. It was right before the first flowers opened. The normal reccommendation is to sever the flower stalks when they're just a few inches tall but I wanted to see what would happen if I grew them out. The longer stalks seem to be just as effective but I'll do a side-by-side comparison next spring to see if there's any significant difference.
That is interesting! I've read several places to cut the stalks when they're rather short, a few inches as you mentioned. Hopefully I'll be able to overwinter my traps and get some flower stalks to tinker with next spring. I may do a similar experiment. Maybe by then I'll have a controlled area to propagate in. I like the idea of having more stalk to work with. :)
