    Or fungus? Or excess heat? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]

    First it was like this.


    Then it became like this.


    Do you see this in your plants too?

    Btw, ignore the unnatural blue hue in the first pic. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Cindy, is that a flower stalk emerging from the second pic? Is it possible that this species is somewhat an annual, behaving similarly to a D. burmannii. Mine recently died as well, not from the same causes. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]

    My first plant died after flowering. It was the only D. sessilifolia I had but fortunately, the seeds are viable and I got this now. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]



    Anyway, I was just wondering about the redness at the petioles because almost all the plants in other pots turn red as well! But the plants are back to green again these couple of days.

    I find the same thing happens to my plants. The plant seems to flower and then die, then lots of volunteer seedlings appear all over the place.

    I'm not sure how many die in my pot, I never notice.
    Mine is crammed full like your pot.

    I never grew this drosera but I think age is the problem. You know, many rosetted droseras are annual [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] Just make sure that you collect the seeds [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
    Boo!

    It was noted on a previous topic (a few years back) that the rosettes of D. sessilifolia often turn reddish in the centre when they flower. Haven't ever noticed it on any of my plants but mine seem to be grown in much more light than those in the images, particularly the first couple.
