ever pollinate prim? got pics

Is this looking like it or not.
I cut off green surrounding the image of the pod
Been couple of weeks.

Or does the ovary need to swell beyond out way more?
I'd love to see any successful pollination pics plz

You can successfully self a pinguicula, but get little to no seed. The majority of Pinguicula are not self fertile, and have evolved to even prevent accidental self pollination. I believe primuliflora is one of them.
Well, now that I have D. camporupestris, there isn't really anything to put in my signature...

...Pinguicula...

Probably, and I guess flowers do last weeks
