    While I don't have any first hand experience with D. pulchella, I do with D. nitidula x pulchella. I'd say that it's probably alright to just let it grow. D. pulchella does produce seed and has flowers, I believe, that can vary in color from red, orange, and white. I'm not sure if it has a scent. I've never noticed D. nitidula x pulchella having a scent but then again I've never really stuck my nose that close. I say YAY!

    Speaking of damaged roots, my border collie decided it would be fun to chew up the pot I was growing 20 or 30 D. nitidula x pulchella in. I managed to rescue 10 or so plants with little to no roots attached. And to my surprise, they are coming back quite nicely. I was certain they were going to die. I guess this hybrid is a little more robust than I thought.

    Goodluck,
    Chris

    The flowers are about the size of the plants, usually little bit smaller. The flower will only open on a sunny day and are only open for one day. The flower normally have metallic sheen and is one of the nicest of the pygmy sundew. They normally do not self seed.
