I've read somewhere that allowing VFT's to flower will kill the plant. So this is not the case with sundews? I'm concerned because my sundew has a stalk that's right about to flower, and if keeping the flower won't harm the plant, I'd love to keep it. thanks.
Collect the seeds 2-3 weeks after the last flower bud has stood up. If they don't open, you wil still get seed. The pods will be brown by then. Cut the scape, and put in a paper envelope at room temp. The pods will dry out and release their seed. Lable the envelope immediately and also include the date harvested. after the seed is visable in the envelope transfer it to a smaller envelope like stamp collectors use, lable and store in the fridge in cool dry conditions.
