Is this call d.lanata? And this(left side) should be flower stalk right? Will it self pollinate & have seeds? Will it die after bloom? Thanks in advance :D

Yep, that looks like a D. aff. lanata. Definitely not the type form though. My guess is the common aff. lanata from Flying Fox Creek, NT.

Yes, that is a flower stalk. Unfortunately all petiolaris Drosera (with the possible exception of banskii and the other annual species) are self-incompatible, meaning they can not self pollinate. To make seed you need a genetically different individual.

Blooming generally doesn't hurt petiolaris dews, just make sure it's fed well and it will do fine.

Leaf pullings rarely work on hairier petiolaris dews like Aff lanata, ordensis, derbyensis, etc. pullings mainly only work on falconeri and darwiniensis. Aff lanata doesn’t grow like the type form paradoxa, which grows a stem. Aff lanata will remain flat.

Division works really well. I have an army of Aff lanata from flying Fox creek (20, 25 adult plants?) from four plants I got less than a year ago.

Yeah my aff. lanata is a trip. It went dormant a week after I received it. I cooked it outside over the summer and it divided into 3, I split and it divided into 3 more :lol:

Something interesting I noticed with these kinds of plants are if you pull off or damage a leaf, it has a tendency to grow an offshoot at the location of the trauma off the base. Decided to test it on a free plant I received and pulled at a couple on either side of the plant and got 2 "divisions" from a very immature plant (about 1.25 inches) It was something I had read somewhere. Won't say it's 100% though
