If anyone is growing non-typical Dionaea and they send up a flower stalk and you decide to snip it off, I'd be grateful if you would send it to me. I'm planning on using them for tissue culture. I'd pay for shipping and I'd pay you back in plants eventually or a trade of your choice for what I can offer now.

The best length for the flower stalk would be between 2 and 3 inches.

Ahoy! I have a green dragon which is in dormancy at the moment, but it has two flower stalks! It took me forever to get one plant to create two stalks at once. It is grown in a completely clinical environment and only received artificial nutrients. So even through dormancy it still has the energy to develop two stalks.
So, if you are willing to wait for at least two weeks , then you can have one.
I guarantee that this plant is completely free of any spores or pathogens which will hinder the process of tissue culture.
I was my original plan to cultivate this plant for tissue cultivation so it is quite the perfect candidate.

I like the way you optimize the growth of your plants. Perhaps you'd want to post the care you give to your plants on a weekly and daily basis?

I'm really curious!

By Anrich
thanks!! I really appreciate the compliment!!
Then I shall post on a weekly basis about specific treatment for specific plants!
Thanks again!!
By Anrich
I shall let you know as soon as the stalk is at it's peak of strength, just to ensure it arrives in the best state possible.
It is a pleasure to help a fellow dionaea fanatic!!!!

Hey Matt!

I don't have any flower stalks right now but when my akai ryu and dente make flowers in the spring I'll try my best to send the flower stalks to you.

Are flower stalks covered under the CITES rules??? It’s not a plant which is covered and it’s not a seed which you can ship without issues. If flowers are classed the same as seeds this would be a great way to trade internationally!!!

All parts of any plant and / or animal listed on the CITES database are controlled. Fortunately for us, I just did a search on Dionaea muscipula and venus fly trap and the search returned the following results.

Genus : Dionaea
Taxon : Dionaea muscipula Soland ex Ellis Comment on this entry

Legislation Details :

c) cut flowers of artificially propagated plants; and
d) fruits and parts and derivatives thereof of artificially propagated plants of the genus Vanilla.

The question here is: Does artificially propagated plants include those that were leaf pullings?

By the way that this is stated, you could also transport a seedling in a sterile container...

correct me if I'm wrong, folks.
