    no well the bog with the clump of filliformis came inbetween the clump . The pot i planted the rubra and filiformis from you had a few annoying weeds in it. The flower stalks seem ok even though they are hanging on there side and bent over.

    Oh ya and that pond of mine is the turtle pond you will see one sitting on the rock in the one corner. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    Wow...very nice! My filiformis(from RL7863) have been firing up flowers but nowhere near as many as yours. I'll get photos.

    Also, how can you tell if they are going to set seed? I've been trying to pollinating the blooms but am unsure if my efforts have been successful.

    Also, does blooming drain the plants resources alot?

    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

    Yes D. filiformis is self fertile. I have lots of seeds from mine this year. The way I tell when the seeds are ripe is when the lowermost flowers are completely dry and almost black I take and tap the stalks over a plate and see if seeds fall out.. then repeat the process every couple days till you get them all.

    Cheers
