    I have some U. sandersonii, that had flowered, and the flower has fallen off. Many more are starting to bloom. It has left behind, what I guess will be what will be a seed pod. Does U. sandersonii self pollinate? and how long do you let it on the stalk before collecting?

    Good question. I have a U. sandersonni flowering now too, and would like to know this answer as well. If I may add a question, how do you collect the seed? In the same way as a Drosera flower's?

    I have never heard of U. sandersonii producing seed in cultivation. For utrics that do produce seed, you can probably collect it the same as any other seed.

    I believe they are self sterile. I have never had a single pod.

    Maybe someone could try cross-pollinating with two different clones of U. sandersonii. Or even with U. livida, a very closely related species. For Utrics that do seed, you can wait until the pod turns brown and/or splits open and then collect the seeds.

    I was lazy when I wrote this question. I check my Savage Garden book, and it says to use a toothpick or small paint brush to tease the flower.

    U.livida is closely related to u.sandersonii?! They seem so different.

    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.
