I was wondering if they self-polinate.Or will I need to help them out?Thanks in advance

For pigmy sundews the focus is not on producing seeds. Instead, it's the production of gemmae in the fall. That is how they propogate and what we trade with others. Mine flower all summer and so far I haven't seen any plants from germination. But maybe others have.
It's been one of dem days
I've been trying to convince mine of that but they insist on forming gemmae whenever they want.

How come chicken fingers are bigger than buffalo wings?

Some species that are self-fertile include D. ericksoniae, leucoblasta, pygmaea and various forms of pulchella.
