    This plant propagates itself like crazy. It will continuously sprout new plants around its base as it gets larger. Usually after they fall over, I cut the stem and let the little ones take over.

    Yea they make new plants around itself, and it dies back sometimes. But it will always, mostly always, come back.

    Here's a picture:



    I had one flower a few years ago, but there were no seeds. It may be self-pollinating, nut mine was a dud.

    I fed mine after I chopped them down, and they grew very fast. Also, every one has flowered now, but I think they are sensitive to the heat of my lights--- so, unfortunately, I haven't been able to collect any seed from them.
    BTW, I remember Crissytal had an interesting technique. I believe she cut the stems off when the plant gets too large, and then pots up the upper half of the plant with newer leaves and waits for them to root. The original plant will come back from the roots in a few weeks too, so you have 2-4x the number of plants in a short time.
    Here's a pic of my small clump, originally from droseraguy (thanks again )

    They're definitely a fun sundew to grow.
