    Nice photos! And your D. binata is a hardy beast. I wouldn't worry. Soon those flowers will produce tons of seeds and you won't know what to do with them all!

    Anthesis is always a thrill! It's the crowing climax of growing (that, and the seed set) and how the plant lets you know you are a good provider. Congratulations on your success story!

    As for seed set in Drosera binata...well, some do and some don't. It depends on the particular clone. I've had tons and nones.

    Nice job! And while seeds aren't reliable, leaf cuttings are:

    Nice picture. My D. binata [Dichotoma "giant"] has a stalk coming up too, just waiting on the silly thing to bloom so I can snag a piccy.

    That test tube pic will never get old.
