    My D. Spatulata is flowering. It has 3 stocks popping up. Do they self pollinate? Has anyone else had experience? Please tell me :-)

    Yes they self pollinate. Soon you'll have more seedlings and seeds than you know what to do with.

    I've got one, too. Can I verify which type I have from the flowers?

    Fraiser island has white flowers, regular has pink flowers

    Once the seed pods are black, dead, dry, and crackling, remove the seed pods and gently crunch them over a piece of paper, and BAM! you got a million seeds

    Fraser Isalnd Drosera spatulata do flower white, and this helps as a possible suggestion if the collection data is not known, but flowers will not reveal the plants origins.

    There are a few tumb rules: white flowered forms are likely from the Queensland area in Australia, or from New Zealand. Very small rosetted plants are likely to have originated in Borneo or Hong Kong. The latter usually have very short peduncles.
