Hello all
My D.Filiformis Var. Filiformis has a flower stock. I decided to keep it since I had never seen CP flowers or collected seed before, so I decided to give it a try.
This morning at around 8:30, one of the buds bloomed! It was a successful flower, And I made sure to pollinate it with a paintbrush(even though I am pretty sure filiformis are self pollinators). Here are the pics, and sorry for crappy android quality lol:

I hope to get many seed from this to donate to the seed bank.
Thanks for viewing and happy growing,
Max

Congratulations! I've been unable to catch my filiformis flowering because it is outside and I don't get out there in time. The flowers are always closed when I get there.

Update:
The good news:
I think I may have seeds(about 50 or so)
The bad:
I can't seem to get the "seeds(I think)" off my fingers(pics down below)
Here are the pics:

Can anyone identify if these are actual seeds or just flower stalk remains, and tips on how to get them off my finger :lol: ?
Thanks
Max

Ok,
I just got them off my fingers and separated them from most of the chaff/dead flower onto a piece of folded paper. Here is the result:

Until anyone replies, I will keep this in the folded piece of paper and will packetize it if I have confirmed seeds by anybody.
Please be viable seeds
