My Drosera capensis have faithfully flowered and set seed every year. The
seeds are self-pollinating. Although I stratified my seeds by keeping
them in the refridgerator over the winter with all my other seeds I don't
believe this is necessary as capensis is a temperate species. The one
mistake I made was in using non-sterile peat moss to sow the seeds in.
Now I have more moss than seedlings, and it, I fear, is threatening their
survival. Best of luck!
