The clone I grew did not self-seed.

However, I don't know whether it was just not self-pollinating or not self-fertile.

You can try self-pollinating it.
It is much like self-pollinating a butterwort, but smaller.

You stick something tiny, like a needle, down the spur, and move it out, while moving back towards the upper corolla seveeral times. This should bring pollen from the anthers to the stigma.

I found this in the Savage Garden, and have not tried it yet...

True, I always forget to check my savage garden, as it is digital format, it says that rarely they make seed. I have read that same description on D. adelae, so I would think I'm not getting seeds.

But as it is my first Utric then I really love it, and the time the flowers remain open!

I have tried the pollination with a tiny brush, lets see how it goes, I did it in both flowers
