    dewy, how do you tell? Seriously, I am going to have hundreds, perhaps thousands of seeds soon and I need to confirm the identity of this fellow...

    We can't compare gemination rates.

    We can't compare flower colour and leaf shape.

    Should I look at the stigma?

    Hi
    Im a little confused with id too
    this is what i grew from seeds supplied by a german grower marked as sessifolia chapada brazil

    this one of our local aussie burmannii


    they look way different to me - but could these two both be burmannii?

    Please confirm sessifolia id if possible
    supprisingly these are both grown under same lights .

    regards Belinda

    The truth is, it's REALLY hard to tell these two species apart -- especially now that hybrids between these have become common in cultivation.

    Here are a few basic guidelines which may help:

    D.burmannii -- leaves yellow-green, more triangular, flowers white, flower scape often with a curve at the base.

    D.sessilifolia -- leaves orangish-yellow, more rounded, flowers pink, flower scape erect.

    Good luck,
    Fernando Rivadavia

    Here is the difference. The D.sessifolia is on the right side while the D.burmannii is on the left side.


    Here is another pic of D.sessifolia. As you can see, it is very red when grown in good light while D.burmannii stays a yellow green.

    Here is how I can tell. D. sessilifolia has wider and more parallel petioles, round laminas, and is glandular on the petiole and on the back of the leaves.

    Hmm..seems that the plants are likely to be D. burmanni or even a hybrid!

    Btw, I found this thread.
