    Exclamation

    Hey my Drosera Binata Multifida has sent up a flower stalk and I've been told that they don't self pollinate so I was wondering if anyone had another flower opening so that we could either swap pollen or you could give me the pollen then I could give you half the seeds. Or vicea versa. Anything that works will be fine. Here's a (kinda crappy) pic of the plant.

    I think the plants have to bve genetically different. Pollen from the same species (even though it may be someone else's plant), will not work. Or won't it...?

    Incorrect. Pollen from the same species is required unless you plan on creating a hybrid. In order to pollinate forms of D. binata var. multifida you generally require a genetically different clone (ie- different genes) of the same species.

    Ahhhh... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    So that means two different plants - of the same species?

    the same species can be genetically different. all humans are of the same species but obviously we're genetically different.

    well yeah... we're 99.9 percent genetically identical.
    and we have 99.4% of the same functional genes as chimps! I really think they should be homos too! LOL!!! (no, really... they should be in the same genus as us)
