    I think I figured it out- when I was younger, so much younger than todaaaay (sorry)
    I got D.adelae and D.aliciae mixed up a lot- D.adelae flowers but (supposedly) rarely sets seeds- I think that explains the mystery maybe??

    aliciae is a weird plant. some flower, some dont. it doesnt really seem to depend that much on conditions either, from what i've heard. mine flowers once in a while, and i dont have the greatest conditions for sundews, and some people that grow dews exclusively cant get them to EVER flower.

    maybe theres a bad lineage and a good lineage...
    if i were ruler of the world, anyone who defined a nepenthene as a "companion plant" to orchids would be fired from a cannon atop mt. kinabalu.

    This is indeed an unusual species. D. aliciae blooms for me about 1 time a year. I usually get a single flower stalk from a single plant out of the 5 or 6 in the pot. The rest just sit there. Unfortunately, as was mentioned previously, they tend to fry in the lights or grow on to oblivion above. I have yet to get seed from my D. aliciae plants.

    D. adelae on the other hand, well that's a different story. D. adelae, for me, flowers almost continuously. It has never set seed to my knowledge. I have never seen seedlings popping up in neighboring pots, so I assume that it is not seeding. It grows from root sprouts EVERYWHERE!! What a cool plant.

    EDIT: Errmm uhhhh... to get back on topic.. if you want some D. adelae I will be happy to help you out with flowering sized plants. Can't help with the other one though.. sorry.
    There are only 2 infinite things... the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not too sure about the universe.
