My collection of tuberous Drosera is far from extensive but I
have been able to get seed from D. stolonifera porrecta, D.
stolonifera rupicola, D. whittakeri and D.peltata. All of these
were self pollinated.D. peltata produces copious quantities of
seed and ends up growing all over the place. I haven't been able
to get others, such as D. orbiculata and D. zonaria, to produce
seed though.


Which species are giving you troubles?
