    My U. Lividia has plenty of flowers coming and going. The question is how do i get seeds from them?

    pollinate them like you would a pinguicula

    No need to pollinate! They do very well by spreading and flowering. This is another CP weed!

    Do they self pollinate? I have some that has a few flowers on it and I was also wondering how to get seed.
    My life sucks

    They must. I mean I have done nothing to encourage them, other that water and light.

    My U. livida doesn't self pollinate [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img] . But I'm not desperate enough to hand pollinate it.

    My guess would be to stick a toothpick into one and then the other making sure to brush all the little things inside.

    Very few of my Utricularia species ever self pollinated (subulata, lateriflora, bisquamata being the exceptions) and certainly not livida. I just never was able to pollinate by hand, although Pyro has had some success there!
