    Several weeks ago my Drosera filiformis ssp. filiformis flowered. The first buds on the flower stem now are starting to turn black on the top of the bud. So yesterday I pulled one bud off. Today I went to collect the seed. First think I noticed is that the seed was a yellow - green color, and bigger then D. capensis or D. spatulata seeds.
    This is the first time I collected from this plant. I guess my question or concern is, are the seeds rip? So far the other sundew seeds I've collected have always been black.

    Ripe seed is always black or brown. I would let the seed ripen more before harvesting it.
