Venus Flytraps are blooming

The flowers may be a bit difficult to see, but if you click on the photo you can see that both plants are flowering. Silly, VFT's! I was worried about the transplant, but it seems as if the VFT's are fine. :) FYI - most people clip the flowers from their VFT's since they don't produce much seed and they use a lot of the plants reserves. I'll be clipping these flower stalks in the next day or so.

Here's another shot from a bit farther back. They're still looking straggly, but this spring I expect them to put on a good show.

I let mine bloom once and the plant seemed to do OK. I wasn't able to collect any seeds, though.
