    Are there any cues as to when the stigma is most receptive? Or does that happen after it closes? When do the pollen sacks actually release the pollen?

    The stigmas I think are receptive the whole time the flower is open, and I'm sure for some time after it closes, and the pollen... depends on the species. Most release it the second the flower opens, some it takes a few minutes to an hour.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.

    I don't really get the appeal of drosera hybrids, it isn't like with nepenthes where many hybrids are much easier to grow than pure species.
    Come to me flies and crawling bugs. This plant wants to give you great big hugs
    Aren't I pretty, don't I smell good? I'd come to you if I could
    But I can't so you must come to me, I'm sure we will get along splendidly

    Many are easier to grow, take D. x tokaiensis for instance. And with both genera it's not necessarily ease of growing, but the fact that the hybrid looks unique. Cross 2 Drosera with leaves that are completely different in shape and you end up with a unique looking hybrid.
