    I can't say with any authority but if it is like many tropical/subtropical Droserae then it will probably self-pollinate and produce seed prodigiously. As with most Drosera in cultivation flowering should not be harmful to the plant, although you may see some slowing of leaf growth and dew production until the seeds ripen.

    Thanks "Not",

    Ive had Cp's off and on for 30+ years but I have just recently become addicted to the sundews. So I am trying to catch up and learn from everyone
    So far, the only written reference I have found on this species states that they produce very few seeds.

    Well, as I said, I'm no authority on the subject. If this species produces few seeds then they would probably be in demand. This is another factor to consider in whether to allow it to flower or not. Flowering probably would not be good for a sickly, stressed out plant but yours looks healthy to me.

    How long have you been growing this particular plant?

    thanks Finch

    update,

    all is well, vegetative (sp?) growth has obviously slowed but the flower stalk is progressing nicely, should have flowers before too much longer I would think.

    Seems like the plant's color has darken from hot pink to a reddish pink, maybe just a diff exposure setting (point and click camera) or maybe a reaction to the stress of flowering.. I dunno

    Very Nice!

    Extras of something like that could make good trading material!
