    Drosera Burmannii Sexual Propagation

    Hey, I would like to know how to self-pollinate my D. Burmannii's flower. Can you please put it in dumber terms if possible? I've watched countless videos on how to propagate CP flowers, but I just can't get it . I don't know what a stigma is or if there even is pollen on the flower. I really want seeds before the Drosera dies, so how do I propagate it sexually only using 1 flower?

    They self-pollinate before closing. No need to pollinate on your part.

    D. burmannii self pollinates without difficulty and produces plenty of seed.

    I've never gotten seeds from pygmy sundews. Most people use gemmae to propagate their pygmies.


    EDIT: Gemmae Info

    D. occidentalis seems to self pollinate and set viable seeds. Takes forever for them to germinate. Grows realy quickly. Other pygmies I don't know. Some are naturally occurring hybrids and may not produce fertile seeds.

    It's an awesome and handy site written by Cplantaholic (Aaron). I'd bookmark it if you haven't already.
