    In my limited experience, I've found my capensis and lake badgerup flower around noon. Of course, the weekend is coming up so check around 10,11,12, and 1. They seem to be open for about half an hour, so watch for it!

    Can't help you with the self pollination question. Sorry!

    Rotundifolia, I believe, is open for a very short time, usually sometime in the morning, probably around 10 or 11 as wickedthistle said. I'm pretty sure rotundifolia and spatulata will self-polinate, but I don't think pygmies do, and I have no idea about collinsiae.

    I know rotundifolia self-polinates but that's the only one I have experience with. My plants seem to have their flowers open almost all day.. as long as the sun is up (wich in Alaska in the summer can be a very long time..)

    I remember when my D. rotundiflora/spathulata flowered. I never saw them open. They probably only opened around midnight, I guess [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img] .
