    Binata
    Spathulata and Seeds
    Brevifolia
    Burmannii (seeds)
    Capensis (seeds)
    Capensis Wide Leaf
    Natalensis
    Adelae
    Tokaiensis

    Are any of these self pollinating?

    I think only the New Zealand form of binata is sterile or it needs to be cross-pollinated with another binata. spatulata is self-pollinated and before the P-man comes [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] , it's spelled spatulata not spathulata and it shouldn't be capitalized since it's a species. All capensis forms are self-pollinated, so is Adelae and tokainsis also. The others ones I don't really know.

    Most forms of Drosera binata are not self-pollinating, including the Australian forms.

    D. adelae is very difficult to self-pollinate but will produce extremely small (almost none) quantities if given a helping hand.

    All the other species listed are self-pollinating and will readily set seed without any help.
