    do Genlisea self pollenate? is a lil effort on my part required? or do i need a different clone? i have Genlisea violacea x lobata blooming now and with several ppl exprecing interest in getting started in Genlisea i was going to try and start some from seed as they arent spreading all that fast to give away plantlets.

    I have never tried to manually pollinate any Genlisea and I am far from an expert on the genus.

    However, nearly every flower of my G. hispidula produce viable seed and resulting volunteer seedlings.

    In contrast, I have never obtained swollen ovaries or seed from my G. violacea x lobata, although it flowers almost continuously. The flowers hang around for a few weeks and eventually shrivel up and drop off.

    Has anybody gotten seed of G.lobata X violacea? Or is it infertile?
