    Hello,
    I know this topic should go on the sundew section, but I figured I'd get more replies here. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
    I have a spath (spathulata) that's flowering! every day I check on it, it looks like I missed a flowering! the floweres look like they had flowered, but closed before I could pollinate them! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] when is the flowering time for D. spath? thanks [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img]

    you just rub two flowers together, or rub a toothpic in one.
    pollinating it makes you get seed

    I think spatulata would be pretty likely to be self-pollinating, so you should still get seed. Some sundew species have very short flowering times. With some species, the flowers seem to be very shortlived (and are open for just a matter of hours). If the closed flowers have small green pods, they've probably self-pollinated, and you just have to wait for the seed to ripen.

    Yeah I highly doubt you will have to worry about pollinating them they should do it on their own. I never bothered to pollinate 3 D. Intermedia "cuba" that I have growing in a pot and I just collected like 250+ seeds! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
