    My D. binata (multifida) recently sent up three very long leaves and they bend over all the way down to the shelf. Id there anything that I can do differntly to make the stalks stronger?

    It also has a flower stalk about 16 inches long growing on it. The flower buds look like they are about to open. How do I pollinate and collect seeds?

    When most of the pods turn brown, you can cut down the stalk and collect the seeds. There's a article in the article forums and I thought D. binata had to be crossed with another D. binata in order to produce seed?

    Most Drosera binata clones are self-incompatible. A few are self-fertile. In order to optimize your chances of getting viable seed you need to cross pollinate between different Drosera binata clones.
