Subject: D. intermedia is flowering!!

Today I noticed my D. intermedia has sent up a flower stalk. It came up
amazingly fast - I didn't even notice it until today, and it is like
three inches tall! There aren't any flowers yet, but I see buds on it
about to open. I have a few questions...
first of all, is this the time for a D. intermedia to be flowering? I
always thought sundews flowered in the spring.
And another thing - I really want my sundew to produce seeds, but sundew
flowers are so small that I can't pollinate them myself. One it flowers,
should I sit the plant outside for a while and hope that bees or
something pollinate it (I don't think bees can get into my greenhouse)?
