Intermedia sprouted a flower stalk but the plant is still very small.
Read in the forum in order for the plant to achieve max growth, the flower stalk should be removed.

Should i nip it near the base or just cut it to prevent it from flowering?
And throw the stalk in water hoping plantlets will form?

I think you should nip it near the base and then chop it up into a few pieces and try to grow it like a leaf pulling.

Next time cut it when the flower stalk is not more than 3cm tall if you don't want it to flower.

Anyway, if you intend to cut it now, it doesn't matter if you cut the top 5cm section or cut near the base. Only the top end will sprout plantlet when placed on top of peat moss.

CK, how big is D. intermedia now? It's OK to let it flower when it's >4.5cm diameter. Cut the flower stalk when the plant is below 4cm diameter. The same applies to D. tokaiensis.

Appreciate the fast response. Thank you!
Still a newbie in caring for carnivorous plants.

Lets see if I am lucky enough to have plantlets from the stalk.
Will update again.

It will take awhile for them to overcrowd your pot. Of cause it is best to let them have space to grow but should not be that big of an issue.
