    Did you hand-pollinate them?

    The ones that bloomed first may be ready to go already. Snip off a single pod with some scissors and break it open; if the seeds inside are tiny, hard and black then I'd say they're ready. Only take the blackened pods - don't disturb the ones that are still reddish/pinkish. A lot of times with other Drosera (never had adelae flower for me) I've found that the first seed pods have already naturally broken open and scattered their seed by the time the entire stalk is ready to be harvested. I usually pull each pod off individually when it's ready.

    Ive only gotten 2 of mine to flower first one i didnt know what to do and cut it off in fear of killing it, now i know how to handle it a bit better ill check out the pod...

    Not that hard, just when i wake if i rember i brush the flowers,when i get home from school i brush the flowers when i go to sleep i brush the flowers if i rember..

    I broke open a pod to find no seeds... if a ny look at their size... i might just try breaking up the pods... then putting what i think are the seeds in soil...
