The first flower on my Drosera regia opened this morning.
Initially, the pollen was a solid block on the anthers.
At lunch time, it had ripened and you can see it looks fluffy and expanded.
I took a toothpick and tiny paintbrush and channeled my inner honeybee.
You can see the pollen grains on the stigmas in the last two photos.

You'll want to try again later - the stigma aren't open yet. Generally you'll have the best results applying pollen from a fresh flower onto a day-old flower.

Thanks.
I'll check and pollinate again, tomorrow.
