Darlingtonia over time....

Flytrap

Seedling
Hi everyone, I plan to snap photos of a few darlingtonias who are in inflorescence... and will track them over the course of this year. A visual diary if you will. I'll post pics every other week or so. At the end, there'll probably be a bunch of seeds which I can distribute

Seedling
Hi everyone, attached are some photos of my darlingtonia bog and floral scapes with seed pods. I hand pollinated them a month back. A few of the seed pods had been chomped up by slugs or something (see photos with bites on the pods... you can see the seeds in development).

Interesting to note that once the flowers go into seeding mode, the scapes elongate and the seed pods rotate outward to face the sky. I'll put aside some seeds later this summer for those who asked earlier. Thanks
