Hey guys I have something odd possibly going on here I'm growing some flytrap seeds these guys are still young like only 2 months. So I was looking at them and I see something growing out of the center of one that's round like a little flower stalk almost looks like theres a little nub on the top like where a flower bud would open up. I'll get pics to post shortly

Yep, that's a flower stalk in a baby flytrap! I've seen it before. The one plant I saw do that, I self-pollinated it and put the seed in tissue culture. Several of the babies from the resulting seed set also flowered young!

I'm guessing flytraps are like people in that some are early bloomers and some are late ones.

It is so small, I doubt that there is enough tissue to actually form new plants, but you could try it and see!
