Flowering Carnivours

claritamariaSeptember 7, 2007

My carnivours seem to be putting out endless flowers. VFT, Pings and Sundews. Especially the pings. Does this mean they are happy? Is there a benefit in letting them flower or not letting them flower?

Thanks

Clara

Hi,
yes it means that they are happy.
You should'nt let the fly trap flower to much or it could die.
After all,it takes a lot of engery.

Generally speaking, this is a good thing. Only a VFT will be too stressed out from flowering.... if it was a storebought, neglected, underlit, no dormancy plant. Then it's a good idea to cut the flower. Other than that, you're doing quite well!
