I have several Cape Sundews -- my first CP purchase was a Cape Sundew (sold as an "Octopus Plant" by Wallgreens) and a Venus Flytrap. I also have a Cape Sundew 'Alba', and 2 baby Cape Sundews from my Monkey Cup's pot -- not sure which Cape is their daddy, I would presume the Typical.
Both the Alba and the Typical are sending up flower stalks, again. They've both done this dozens (or, in the case of my 2 year old Cape Sundew, hundreds) of times before. Each time they flower once, then shrivel up and poof away.
I presume that what is happening internally is that they make seed pods of some kind, what I end up with is little plant-baggies on the stem, over and over again, that look like what would happen if you picked up a tarp at the edges and pinched it up.
It seems odd with everyone else considering Cape Sundews to almost be a weed, but I'd like to try to get some more child plants going. Is there a trick to getting those little baggies to pop open and spit out seed?
Should I just pick them off after they shrivel up and turn black and plant them whole? Should I crack them open and get at the seed directly? Should I just count my lucky stars I only have 2 seedlings and not 200?
