    The seeds that I am currently collecting are from two Red Dragons. I did self pollinate the flowers. Because the flowers were not cross pollinated, the seed set is low. An average of 5 seeds per pod. The reason I self pollinated the plants is that each is a clone of the other. I am not sure if a better seed set would have resulted if I had cross pollinated the two clones. My original intent was to cross a Dente with a Red Dragon. However the Dente did not flower at the same time. I later terminated the flower stalk on the Dente as the health of the plant was questionable.

    Plants produced by tissue culture do grow much faster than plants from seed. The two Red Dragons I have were purchased from pft and were potted up on 11/28/2002. The first flower opened on 3/9/2003.[/QUOTE]
    Lets hope the seed is fertile then [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] I know a lot of people have tried it with no luck, but not with Red Dragons.

    How do I know if i've pollinated it correctly before I wait 5 - 6 weeks to see if I've done it right?

    I have updated my Venus Flytraps from Seed page. I added some information and corrected some spelling errors. Please let me know if the new data corrupts the true intent of the page. I sometimes get to be a wind bag.

    I added a bit about tissue cultured plants. Please correct any errors in my thinking/judgement.

    There is a bit about successful pollination. I hope to soon add a newer photo of the seed with a ruler to allow those that have never seen the seed to get a better idea of the actual size.

    Oh, and there might be a plug in there. Let me know if that should stay or be taken out. I really don't want to get partial to one nursery.

    Hope you all enjoy. And please let me know of any corrections, additions, or things I need to take out.

    thanks,

    *I feel really stupid. I looked right at that post and didn't see it*

    I think it's great, but you should mention that self pollination will yeild little or no seed because I hear a whole lot about unsuccessfull tries at this (probubly from imbreeding)
