    The hitchhiker Utricularia in my Drosera aliciae pot flowered last week. I'm pretty sure it is U. bisquamata. Here's some photos of the flower. A couple days later the colors really came out but I was too busy to setup the tripod.

    Does U. bisquamata self-pollinate?

    You bet your sweet life, that they do, that is how that one ended up growing in that pot.

    Every seed that you plant ,doesn't sprout.
    Every seed that sprouts, doesn't make it to maturity.
    Every cutting that you stick doesn't grow roots.
    Every cutting that roots doesn't grow to a small plant.
    Every small plant doesn't reach maturity.

    Ah ok, I don't want these spreading to my other pots so I'll clip the seed pods. It may be too late because of the old seed pods that came with the D. aliciae.

    They don't harm the D. aliciae. Coincidently, I had U. bisquamata popping up in a pot that has a D. sessilifolia and D. capensis, which came from Flytraplady! It was just easier to remove the D. sessilifolia. from that pot.

    Well something else sprouted up in my D. aliciae pot, it's under one of the D. aliciae and is actually pushing up the leaves. The shape of the leaf looks like that of U. reniformis.

    Someone already commented on bisquamata and seeds, but I want to also add that the seeds are numerous and TINY! I took mine today and clipped off all the dried up seed pods. After rubbing them on a piece of paper I found that they are SMALLER than Drosera seeds. No wonder this can become a weed.

    Off to spread weeds about

    try growing the 'Betty's Bay' cultivar of bisquamata (see my avatar), it is non-invasive and has pretty flowers to boot!
