    Well, I think there could be some small fraction of self'ed D. binata seeds that are viable. You know, like ligers.

    D. burmannii has to rank right up there with the reproductive best CPs.
    It is crowding out my D. capensis.
    I am going to post some picks of this on a new thread.

    Man you guys are holy...plant holy that is. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I have experienced that with many plants, including D. filiformis 'all red'. Makes sense, I got it from a cp grower. I should think most of these plant from nurseries originated from cp growers which would have been growing other cps nearby, and occasionally some seeds would fall into the pot. And as you know, seeds can stay dormant for pretty a long while.

    Alright, now I'll tell you something that's weird. I just finished seeding some pots a few days ago. Then, from under the ground and along the sides of the pot emerged baby plants with D. binata, complete with 3" leaves! In a few days!

[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] J/K, I just remembered I threw some soil that previously had D. binata growing in it. Still, the soil was bone dry for the few days I wasn't using it. Amazing eh?!

    This is all pretty funny. Wish I had some immaculate germinations over here.

    Something similar happened to me.....except I found a baby (half-dime sized) VFT growing at the base of one of my D.capensis.

    Strange thing is.....my VFTs have flowered, but I cut the flowers off immediately and I've never tried growing VFTs from seed.

    Perhaps we should resurrect the discarded concept of spontaneous generation!

    I had a D. nidiformis pop up in a D. slackii pot that I had for about 8 months. Now I have hundreds of them. This one might rival D. burmanii for reproductive health.
