    Well, I wound up with 2 full seedpods. I'm waiting for them to develop. My second plant died, but greatfully I crossed them. The stress of flowering seems to be too much for them sometimes.

    Does cutting off additional flowers stop them from waisting energy?

    It looks like there's going to be alot of seed in each pod.

    Don't overwater these!!!

    Lutea is a really difficult plant for me. Mine thrived for a month or two, then it just suddenly withered away. Planifolia did good for awhile but then I accidently dried the soil too much. I've had really good success with Caerulea so far, and Primuiflora seems to thrive whereever I put it.

    Well, I've sowed the resulting seed and have placed 4 packets for trade!

    I can't offer any advice on pollinating, but nice set of çaeruleas. Nice growing!

    Well, for anybody intimidated by pollinating, it's really a piece of cake. Much easier than most drosera IMHO.

    Joseph Clemens gave some great advice. You just need to take the bottom half of the flower off (leave 2 top petals) and it's simple from then on. Take it from someone who just learned and had success on his first try.
