    Fantastic news, Djoni!! Hope you get some little babies out of that plant. The flowers seem quite large among drosera, too.

    Hmmm, maybe I will try that. I had heard you needed two plants flowering to cross pollinate and get seed (I only have one regia), so was not even going to bother trying hand-pollinating. Thank you for this information.

    Thank you. Yes, the flowers are quite large and a nice surprise. They are bigger than the flowers on the "giant" capensis I have and I thought they were big, ha.

    A very cool-looking flower! I really like the little purple glands on the sepals.

    Beautifully grown DJ!


    @Shadowtski My Regia are in the same boat, they just don't seem bothered to grow any larger even though I have them in large sized pots.
