    Your best bet is Tamlin.

    Christian,

    The plants of D. burkeana from Dr. Studnicka at the Liberec are flowering now. If they produce seed I will share this with you. Good luck finding seed of D. communis! I managed to acquire some seed which has germinated. The seedlings are quite different looking than I have seen so this is hopeful.

    Hi,

    I really hope, your plants will produce seeds. It would be great, if i could get some seeds of Drosera burkeana. I'm looking for these two species already for a long time. I had many disappointments with these two. Lots of my unknown Drosera are a result of finding these two. Drosera communis seems to be even harder to find.

    Hi Christian,
    Please email me privately with your trade list - I might have some communis seed available shortly.
    Also, true burkeana is around but the imposters outnumber the real deal by many times. I have a new unique one from tropical Africa which are only seedlings now, but once they get bigger, I will be sure to spread it around.
    The other "burkeana" I grow came from a reputable source who was certain it was burkeana. It's a nice plant, but it's no burkeana....
    Ah, and then there is recent seed of burkeana Johannesburg which I received (the person who sent them certainly had the real species) but none of the seed germinated...
