    Thats beautiful. What kind of conditions do you keep your's in to get nice flushes of flowers like that?

    That clump is in the D. 'Othello' tray so it's 100% live Sphagnum in a shallow tray that is flooded regularly. The same will also happen(for me) if it was in any other Sarracenia/Drosera mix and watered on the tray system (Been there, done that). The pots/trays are in sun.

    I think my 'Betty's Bay' is just about dead. Has never done well for me, unfortunately.

    That's absolutely impressive. How much seed do you get from a crop of flowers like that? Would it be enough to spread to the rest of the tray?

    I've never seen any seed on Betty's Bay. It just creeps along vegetatively.

    Here's Stephen Morley's article http://www.carnivorousplants.org/cul...ys_Bay_web.pdf

    'Nice flowers, Fred. 'Makes me think that my 'Betty's Bay' might be happier in a larger pot with something rather than by itself in such a small space.
