    Unhappy

    1. Will flowering weaken the plant?
    2. Is this hybrid (complex cross of (Sarracenia purpurea x S. psittacina) x (S. leucophylla x S. psittacina)) self-fertile?
    3. How long does the flower-to-seed process take?

    Thanks!
    Cindy

    You have to fertilize it, but the pollination process will produce plants. September-October is seed collecing time here, but flowering so late may mean as late as November for you. To fertilize, see the pinned topic on the NASC thread for the How to's on fertilization.

    I am wondering if it will matter that it flowers late since I am in Singapore.

    Bugweed, so the hybrid is self-fertile? Yipee!!

    Just a note, this is not a cultivar so it should be x umlauftiana. With out the single quoting
    'My love was science- specifically biology and, more specifically, when placed in a common jar, which of two organisms would devour the other.'

    Loads of thanks to Bugweed and Pyro!

    Here are some pics of the flower.

    With flash!


    Natural light.


    The anthers, pollen and stigma.
