    I think I've read before that you can get seed from Drosera adelae if you pollinate the flowers. I have done this on my plant.
    I have taken off 1 or 2 of the old dried flowers to see if there is any seed. The flower just disintegrate. It looks like there might be some small greenish / yellowish things which might be seed, but thought they would be black like all the other sundew seeds I have seen so far. I do not think they are unripe seed, as the flowers have been dried up for weeks.
    Has anyone gotten seeds from there Drosera adelae and what do they look like?
    Thanks.

    I never got seed but then again I never tried to pollinate them either.

    I heard they are hard to get to get seed (they need two different clones I have heard). Anyway my D. adelae disinigrated b/c stupid worm got in my tank. Fortunatly my D. prolifera was in a different tank. Now if only I could get schzandra I would be happy without adelae.
