This morning, I noticed a cute little flower scape emerging from a seedgrown Drosera regia.

I am hoping for seeds in the not too distant future.
Wish me luck ChefDean.
You know where these seeds will go if they do appear.

Looking good! My flowers are on the way up too, though unfortunately only 2 plants instead of all 3 this year since one of them has been incredibly stressed out by pests for months, despite me taking care of them months ago.

I usually don't sell or trade. You can request them as soon as they hit the seedbank. ChefDean has opened the FTC Seedbank to our members in all countries.

My lens is a Minolta 100mm f2.8 AF from my old Minolta Maxxum days and the camera is a Sony Alpha 350. It's a dated old beast but I love it.

Yes sir, we've been doing international requests for a while. We've successfully sent seeds to The Russian Federation (twice), Singapore, Vietnam, Australia (twice), The Philippines, Brazil (three times), The UK, The Netherlands, and Slovenia. The only failure was to Slovakia. I may have missed a couple of places, and a couple are still in transit, but we're spreading the love.
We don't discriminate for a grower being short and stubby, however, Spain.... As long as you can get the perfect socarrat on a paella, you're good.

Whats the trick to pollinating these? I had flowers on two of mine last year. Took my little qtip and rubbed from anther to stigma. Not a single seed.

Timing is rather important. The flowers are not receptive to pollen until the second day at least. The stigma will visibly open up.
