Should I Let it Grow?

by roey benjamin marcus » Sun Feb 28, 2010 6:09 pm

I just saw a flower stalk on my VFT. Should I kep it? I could always get another VFT, and I really want to try to sexually propagate it, but I don't even know how. I bet everyone reading this is *headdesk*ing right now, but I don't understand it at all. The videos were in cruddy quality and I don't even know what I'm working with (what the flower really looks like;how big the flower is, where all the parts are, etc.).

I'll leave it, VFT's are hardy plants. If you have good conditions, the plant is in good shape then there are nothing against it. But if you have only one flowering plant, you'll have to self-pollinate it manually

If you don't think you're ready to sexually propagate it, just cut it and plant the flower stalk, (vegetative propagation). You could get a strike and a new plantlet :D

Now that is something I'd do! Thanks.
