This might sound like a weird question lol, but I was kind of curious on how CP flowers and breeding works? Like for example, if my Nepenthes Ventrata just spontaneously started flowering and I really wanted to get some seeds from it, but didn't have any other plants to breed it with, could it be possible to get someone to like mail pollen or whatever it is they breed with? Or can they asexually reproduce? Or do I have the totally wrong idea about this and they produce seeds in a completely different way? Is it even possible to collect pollen?
I'm very curious about this concept and was just interested to see if anybody has even tried this before. :)

Huh, very interesting! :D I didn't know that, cool! Can you do it with VFTs and Drosera too?
