    Hi All!

    This is uncharted territory here [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] . Since my cp collection is small I do not end up going to the trading forums. Anywhoo...

    I have a D. Capensis which is flowering or has been for the past two weeks. I know they produce seeds, so I was wondering how long do you have to wait? Do they just drop on the ground?

    Like the title says *yada yada*. I am wanting to give away the seeds to people that do not have many cps or zero D. Capensis sundews. I will take up to the first three people that message me and once the seeds drop or whatever I will send them out asap. If more seeds drop I will let you all know and give out more seeds till they are gone.

    Travis

    Travis,
    D. capensis readily self-seeds. If you want to be sure, gently pinch the flowers right after they close. This helps ensure the pollen reaches the pistol...key word here is "gently." Don't squish the poor thing!
    In my experience, there are typically 12 to 20 flowers on a stalk, and each bud is capable of producing a lot of seeds. They're really tiny, so I never really counted! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rolleyes.gif[/img]
    Anyway, it takes *I think* 4 or so weeks (maybe a hair longer) for the seed pods to ripen. They also usually ripen in the same order they openned (bottom to top).
    Collecting seeds is easy...once the seed pods turn brown, keep a close eye on them...they will eventually start to split open. At this point, tap them gently onto a plain white piece of paper, and the seeds will just fall out.
    Good luck!

    I have a question about closed flowers of D. Capensis and D. Spatulata. Can I cut off the flower stalks after all the flowers have closed or do the flower stalks have to stay on the plant for the seeds to form? Thanx for the info. LA Traphole
