    Drosera peltata seeds?

    My drosera peltata bloomed, and made three seed pods. The funny thing is that I didn't pollinate the flowers, nor were there many pollinators in the GH. But there might have been something suitable in there.

    Before I go all nuts, I'd like to make sure there are actual, viable seeds, instead of "duds."

    If these are good seeds, as I suspect, then I'll make a FT thread in the trading post.

    Well...they look like viable seeds to me....shaped right, and nice and dark....my guess it that they are good.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    John Brittnacher created an excellent page on Drosera self-incompatibility over here. In it he notes "Apparently some populations of D. peltata are self-incompatible." which I take to mean that most populations are self-compatible and yours likely selfed on it's own (and are viable).
    All the best,

    Well f*dge! Dory was cleaning, and he saw the ramekin full of seeds airing out and.......

    The seeds are gone. Unless they will germinate in the sewer and mutate into a giant, slobbering, Dory-eating beast, they are gone. I was gonna trade them for something.
