    There are two stalks from the same plant. Assuming they continue and open up flowers. Don't I need stalks from from two different plants or will it work with two stalks from the same plant?

    it depends what dew you're talking about. Many self-pollinate on their own, and it seems that not too many dews require pollination from a genetically different plant.

    I cut the D. lanata stalks off. This Complex of sundews requires two different plants to be flowering. The D. burmannii self-pollinates, so I'm letting that one do its thing.

    It pretty much depends on the species. With short-lived species like D. brevifolia and D. capillaris you want seed to make sure you always have some plants.

    A couple years ago I went in on a trade to get D. brevifolia seeds (also D. trinervia & cuneifolia)). I received a typical packet of seeds and sowed them. It didn't seem as though there were a tremndous amount of seeds in the packet, but it sure seemed as though every seed germinated! Anyhoo, I had a good colony of them... but none ever flowered for me. And slowly but surely, they started dying off. I'm guessing that was because they were annuals?. But there are a couple young plants in there and they didn't come from seeds. Do they also propogate, vegetatively?

    Could be, or they could be slow germinators. I don't remember if I sent you any of the "Hampton, NC" seeds. Those are beauts. No flowers yet, but they're annual/biannuals so maybe next year.

    I don't know enough about them... or any of the 3 I went in on. D. trinervia is certainly a rough one to germinate!

    D. trinervia are supposed to be very slow germinators, like many of the tuberous so you might have to wait a year or two. And the seedlings aren't supposed to like flooding so don't top water. Other than that, that's all I know about the seedlings. Not all went dormant in my pot so I didn't cut out watering and the ones that went dormant seemed to come back. So they may not need bone dry conditions for dormancy.
