    D. aliciae flower



    Do they self sow or will I need to have another flower from another plant? This is the first time I've ever had one flower.

    The will self pollinate. You might want to hand pollinate to increase your chances of getting a seed set.

    Thanks, Warren. For the lark of it, while I have the D. ordensis x paradoxa also blooming, I thought I'd give that cross a try. Why not, right?

    Well, you can try. Petiolaris complex Drosera have a chromsome count of 12 or 14 where as D. aliciae has a count of 40 or 80.

    What exactly does this mean? Does it mean it would be tough to get some viable seed or does it mean you would end up with one very strange plant?

    Highly unlikely to mate successfully. They won't match up.

    You're not likely to get seed viable or otherwise unless the chromosome counts are compatible - either the same or multiples of each other. Thus you can cross Drosera anglica (40) with Drosera rotundifolia (20) and get D. x obovata.
