Cool! Will the flowers self pollinate as with some drosera or is a genetically different plant required?

That's pretty cool. I've always liked hairy sundew flowers.
The profile pic that you see above is my actual photo. I am a hyper-intelligent snake that has learned to use the internet and I will eventually rule you all.
Just kidding..... Or am I?
D. regia will self pollinate but you get better results with 2 parents. But some seed is better than no seed.
I'm still fighting to keep my crop alive and growing. They don't want to make the jump from seedling looking plants. @!#$%^&*(*&^%$#@W!~ if I can figure out what I'm doing wrong. Maybe I need to give them some of my own blood?
While Drosera regia is self-compatible dichogomy may be involved. Lois Ochs reports success with using the "yesterday's pollen - today's stigma" rule of hand pollination. This rule may help with Dionaea muscipula too. Regardless, hand pollination can sometimes increase the amount of seed yield.
Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.
Double post, oops.
