    Coromantel NZ is I believe the common type self fertile most easily found out there. It is in the ICPS seedbank because all of the seed Jim kept getting from it.

    I have managed to self (and by self I mean specifically pollinate a flower with its own pollen) all of my binata complex plants but not without some difficulty. Seed sets are very much lower on selfed blooms but they are selfable. I have also found that flowers from seperate but identical plants produce viable seed (i.e. the flower off a mature plant grown from root cutting is used to pollinate the flower of the mother plant.) These plants are the same clone so technically it is selfing.

    The D. binata dichotoma (small form) I have that multiforks is self fertile. Drops seed like rain. They come up looking very d. rotundifolia like, but that goes by quick. And small form isn't really so small. Why they call it that is because it isn't as large as the giant form dichotma in leaf thickness.

    Yeah, the form Steve is talking about is definatly self fertile. I have more of those than I do of D. capensis.

    thanks for mentioning that BW, I have been trying to figure out why my D. dichotoma "giant" is so small

    LOL dunno, if you didn't thn I mislabbeled my pots - I think maybe it might be the pot I have 'em in too, as I have what MUST be Marston Dragon in a big deep pot and the thing is HUGE, whereas my D.dichotoma "giant" are in a kinda small pot- the "small red form" and D."extrema" died on me for no good reason, but that might be another mistake on my part, I could have actually lost the "giant" (and no dogs came up despie me planting them promptly )

    Hopefully I can get some pics once they're in full swing outside and get this sorted out, I just got them hardened off in the last few weeks and they are just starting to kick butt now
