Darlingtonia pollination studies in 2006

Return to the Trip Overview

Plenty of seeds:
And look at all that seed! Incidentally, I have reproduced Christine Elder's studies, and have verified that flowers kept in mesh bags, and thus safely protected from pollinators, do not produce seed. The flowers not kept in mesh bags produce many seeds. Some mysterious pollinating agent is active in these fields.
