    My regia has flowered

    This is my first regia flower! I have only one regia, so kinda excited to see it in bloom.

    That's great! I can't say I'm surprised, your plant was quite large and healthy when I saw it last.

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

    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?

    Good growing,
    Mike

    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.
