Happy Halloween to All
Hi Mutant and Petiolaris,
Thank you for your help the beginning of Sept. with the Venus Flytrap and the tiny vegetative apomixis. I took your suggestion and wrapped moss around it, keeping it damp. In a 2 yr old archive of another forum I finally found directions on how to remove it. I sacrificed the, not much of a chance, seeds and cut the stalk. By then the plantlet had started some tiny roots in the moss. Today it is outside in it's own pot enjoying our warm weather with mom. Mom took some time to recover but has put up lots of new growth, about 10 new traps, small, but growing and has good color. The baby is doing the same.
And thank you for the encouragement on separating the D. adelae. You are right, they grow like weeds. From one ( 2 leafed, dried up ) Home Depot plant I purchased in May I have about a dozen plus what I have given away.
Have a good evening,
