I just picked up a Dente (an actual labeled one this time!) and an Akai Ryu from a hardware store. They both look to be in fair to decent condition. I would rather cut the flowers, but the Dente's buds look to be so far along that I'm wondering if it would even make a difference. Can somebody more experienced than me provide some insight?

I attached pics of both the buds and the plant itself.

Alright, cool. I do not want flowers, and I don't need seeds. So I cut it and planted it on one of those tiny 2" planters that come in the Lowes death cubes.
