My Drosera intermedia are putting up a ton of flowers again this year. I'm going to cut a bunch but I'm going to let more go to seed in the bogs. I know there are a bunch of seeds for it in the seed bank. Maybe I'll just harvest a bunch and just swap out the older ones for fresh ones. Anybody that would like intermedia seeds, PM me and I'll send you some for a SASE.

I have several shooting out flowers as well...are they self pollinating, or will I need to do something to get seeds? Grown inside for reference, so no pollinators in the tent.

Intermedia is such a vigorous species... I have a ton of seed harvesting to do as well. Even the slower forms from South America make abundant quantities of seed for me.

@bcavanau, D. intermedia is self fertile and makes an unbelievable amout of seed, rivaling capensis :lol:. Additionally, a lot of the time individual plants put up many flower stalks (up to 4 on some of my plants this year!)

I also have a b'jillion flowers on my Intermedias(5 per plant!), and so far each pod has swelled and successfully self pollinated. I plan to harvest the first pod sometime next week. I wanted to donate to the FTC seedbank but @Panman already has that covered... :)

@MaxVft I've already got some seeds from my plants in the seed bank, so go ahead and add yours.

Send them anyway. About half of the intermedia seeds we have are from last year, so relatively fresh. The rest I can take out to some of my friends ponds and sow them.
One in particular is spring fed, highest measured TDS is 27 ppm, so the should take.
