Any idea as to why this occurs? (Plant resistance is low, etc). I'm surprised
that I've never seen any reference to a blight, or a viral infection, or any
major pathogen. Could this be due to a lack of knowledge about the plants, and
that we don't know that the plant was infected, or because there is little that
attacks CP? (besides those damned moths).

My sundews are flowering (they've finally adapted to the new terrarium) and I
was wondering how to collect the seeds and how long the seeds need to be
stratified before germination. The species are D. capensis, D. capillaris,
and D. rotundifolia. All of which self-pollinate (right?)
