Hmmm..........that was really fast.  Neat though.  Are you going to let it flower?

LOL, it looks like this guy might actually flower!
I will try to get some more pics, but the whole stem is only about 1 1/2" and the bud is clearly showing at this point. Too bad for the cutting though, it is way behind all the others and has ceased growing for now and putting all its energy into the flower...

I guess my little plant proved me wrong! This little guy just keeps on amazing me everyday! It seems like this flower produced a total of 12 petals, but I don't see a stigma anywhere, just alot of pollen so I don't think this guy will be making any seeds...

Here are the pics to for the record of the smallest VFT to flower!

It seems like this flower has two of everything! I just checked on it and there are two stigmas.... We'll see if they'll make any seeds.

when it grows bigger you should make cuttings to see if they do the same! maybe you've got another cultivar in your hands :p

I have the exact clone of it from another 2 cuttings and the original plant. It doesn't seem to have any unusual charateristics although it is a very robust big plant.
