rco911 #Sarracenia 'Alucard' x 'Adrian Slack' - a cross I did from a few years ago. I'm lovin' the vein contrast against the pale hood. Just one of the select young plants out of this batch. 1w

  •   rco911 @youplants hey there! It depends - usually I'll see the tell-tale characteristics after 2-3 years, and even after that they could still be a little different when fully mature. :) 1w

rco911 Venus Fly Trap flower 2w
  •   googley_gangstress oooh! aaah! 2w
  •   leochulsongjr Nice close shot of the flower. Great to illustrate a few points. The Q tip like things are the stamen which hold the pollen (male). The shaving brush like object is the stigma, the female receptive part to which the pollen grains must be deposited It is almost at the receptive stage- "bristles" are still stuck together. Notice the diferent positions of the stamens. When the flower first opens, the shaving brush is closed and looks like a Q tip and the stamens are in a cluster over it with the pollen holding anthers open ready to deposit pollen on a passing insect. As the flower ages, the stamens gradually move out and down so that they finally rest on the petals. This process is about half complete and as the eager guys get out of the way, the stigma opens up becoming fully receptive after the stamens are resting against the petals, now out of the pollination path. This is to prevent the flower from pollinating itself and supposedly be available to an insect coming from another flower, thus promoting crossing with another plant. Just on odds, this usually happens, but pollination via an insect that had visited another flower on the same plant, would still produce seed. It was thought that VFT could not produce seed with just one plant and that you needed two plants from two different seeds. You can get seed even on one plant- just pollinate an older flower with shaving brush open with a more recently opened flower even by rubbing heads together! If left alone, seed set generally doesn't occur without the correct insect intervention. 2w
