    Unhappy

    Ok, here's the deal:
    I have a D. capensis and an D. adelae, both with almost mature flowers. I am wondering if anyone has ever had any experience with cross-breeding these two. Also, does anyone know if the hybrid would be sterile or fertile.

    Any help would be appreciated,

    -Gabe

    They are too unrelated; most likely nothing would happen.

    And I was seriously starting to think that I was going to create some amazing hybrid, LOL. (no joke)
    I guess I'll just self them. It should still be cool though, considering it'll be my first time pollenating plants.

    Thanks,

    Drosera capensis pollinates itself too, even without intervention.

    It is possible to self-pollinate D. adelae but the amount of seed produced (if you are lucky) is generally incredibly small, ie- a couple of seeds per seed capsule.
