    They shouldn't rot when they are still on the plant. In the wild they are in humidity anyway.
    Of course if the seed pod has fertilizer on it and is in warm and very humid conditions...
    What is more important than drying is that they ripe.

    Well I don't fertilize my CP's like some people do. They weren't made for that purpose anyays! They were evolving over billions of years to adapt to the no nutrient and acidic conditions and to fertilize themselves, by luring suitable fertilizer!! I don't know why anyone would fertilze these plants when they weren't meant for it! Anyways enough of my speech and for the topic now. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] Well I have learned my lesson! Leave flowers on! But I have another chance as another flower is coming up. Soo tell me ahead of time what to do cephalotus88! (Zach). You know how to pollinate,wait for seeds, and harvest butterworts flowers! AND you have the exact butter wort as me! P.Ioantha. So tell me what to do please. All the way from step 1. Thanks Alot.
