    How do I get seeds from drosera flowers (they self pollinate)? I need an answer ASAP!



    Thanks,

    Kevin

    Most, but by no means all, Drosera will self pollinate. The commonest species: capensis, spatulata, aliciae etc all do. Which Drosera are you growing?

    Thats just the thing. I am not growing them, they are wild and I would like to collect some seeds from them(they are just flowering now). I think they are Drosera x beleziana. In will soon have a pic of one I took from down there.

    Thanks

    D. x beleziana, being a hybrid, may not produce fertile seeds.

    Really? That really stinks. BTW, I said I THINK they are D. x beleziana, not positive.

    Are they only d. x beleziana, or are there intermedia and rountidifolia?(spelling) I'm pretty sure those are the parent plants.

    Ya, those are the parent plants. There is intermedia, rotundifloia, and drosera x. belezinia (I think)
