Flowering in Terrariums

Most sundews I have grown in a closed container flower and set seed poorly. I imagine many terrarium growers have this problem. Recently I discovered forms of D. capillaris are a special exception. See, the flower of my pictured plant from Mississippi is fully opened in the cramped container; and it has been making seed aplenty. The famous Sundew Matt wrote me this:

Hi Ivan. Yes I’ve noticed this. I suspect plants don’t feel the need to waste energy on seed production when conditions are wet as seed is often made so plants can get through unfavorable conditions. M
