    Somewhere I asked about the pollination of D. adelae, whether they self or not and the answer came back as requiring two flowers to do so. My plant is on its 3rd flower stalk and I have made no attempt to manually pollinate anything. For the lark of it, though, I took the oldest seed pod and rubbed it between my fingers and I saw what certainly appeared to be typical Drosera seeds. Can I infer that what I am seeing are infertile seeds?

    They might be fertile. I was able to germinate seeds of adelae from my single clone.

    Michael, right? Well, that first pod is now sprinkled on the media. So maybe in a few weeks I'll have an answer and possible Trading Post offering.

    Thanks [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    woo hoo. I have two adelaes flowering now. One is traded to someone already, but have to wait for shipping window to open up for him. If the flowers open before sending then I will do some cross polination and try for seeds myself. Good luck Jim!!!!

    Good luck with the seeds Jim.

    ImWindPlant,
    My plants made seeds when I did not pollinate them, however, I suspect that something else might have pollinated them. My plants only made seed for me once.

    Not sure what could be doing any pollinating in my set up. It's just sitting at window sill in the bathroom. No bugs that I'm aware of. We'll see what happens over the coming weeks.
