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.
