    Producing Seeds

    How long does it take for the flower to fully blacken with 100% finished seeds?

    Someone knows. You just need to patient; especially since it is a holiday weekend.

    Barry Rice's FAQ says "a few weeks"

    Since Dionaea and Drosera are in the same family Droseraceae the flowers have similar structures. This sticky on flower anatomy applies. Pollination techniques are discussed.

    My windowsill VFT only produced seed when I hand pollinated it and I had that puppy for about 12 years.

    Hand or insect pollination will usually yield better (more and larger) seeds. Plus pollinating between plants will give better genetic diversity and lessen the chance of deleterious genes accumulating.

    wait, u need to hand pollinate the flowers, i left them alone and never touched them

    does that mean they were never pollinated thus no seeds?
