This is my first message here at Terraforums, and I must say I am glad to have found a nice place to get information and discuss these famous but rather uncommon plants.
So, there's something I would like your input on.
My 2 inches wide, 1 1/4 inch high Drosera Intermedia is starting to grow what appears to be a group of flower buds. *Now, I know that flowers can greatly deplete a plant of it's strenght; so I'm wondering, should I risk it and try to pollinate my plant or am I better to cut it off quickly before disaster strikes?
I do not consider myself a good gardener, I'm even surprised none of my CPs (1 Dionaea Akai ryu, 1 Dionaea Dente, 1 Dionaea typical, 1 Drosera Intermedia and 1 Drosera Capensis) has died on me yet. *(Well, maybe not the D. Capensis, it is supposed to be a resilient variety and easy to grow after all.)
So what do you think? *Should I try?
And isn't it still a bit small to be producing flowers?
