    Genlisea selfing

    Hello! Does anyone know if G. hispidula is self-fertile? I just got a flower stalk, so I'll try for seed.

    G.hispidula is definitely self fertile. I've made no attempts to pollinate any of my flowers and they've all produced seed. The pods have a strange way of opening too, they form a tear at the top which opens in a spiral pattern down to the base of the pod.

    Same. I haven't yet had luck with the seed germinating, but I imagine it will pollute other pots one day, too.
