    have you try one cross fertilization between flowers?

    may be wait for the natural withering of the flower before cutting and recreate a humid atmosphere around your plant .

    I think cutting off the flower stalks is a good idea to save your plants energy to recover

    I tried to self pollinate the first flower but I don't think it worked. I have had trouble finding information on pollinating primuliflora flowers. Most people say they just let the plant reproduce via the tiny plants that grow off the leaves. I watched a video on pollinating pings and I tried it on my first primuliflora flower but it wasn't the same as the guy in the video did. He said he tears the lower petals off the flower so he has access to the right parts (anthers and stigma I think?). When I tried to tear the flower the way he did, the entire flower came off minus the top 2 petals and it didn't look like the inside of his flower did but I think I found the parts and tried to self pollinate but no idea if it worked. I don't know the visual difference between "it worked!" and "awwww, no luck". I tried pollinating a few Drosera binata flowers and then eventually I cut them off and put them in a paper envelope and I don't even know if they produced any seed.
