I got some Drosera T Form seeds awhile back from the seed bank. They are starting to form flowers. Is this a self pollinating type? I googled a bit and could not find a definitive answer.
You can see where a deer (I'm assuming) took a bite. And also there is a flowering spatulata in the same pot.

Thanks!Image

If you got the seeds from the seed bank, then those binata were, if memory serves, self fertile, but not self pollinating.

Any idea if it's too late to cut the stem and propagate that way?

I don't think it's too late, but it's almost there. I would leave it and try for seeds, but that's me.
