    I always look forward to topics in the Drosera board with a 56k warning. Gets you that warm feeling of anticipation.

    Thanks for the photo's, very nice both examples. I especially like the pink flower form photo, you got the styles in the shot, very definitive for this species. Pink is a rare flower form in D. burmannii do you know where the seed was originally from?

    Well, there are more and more variations emerging since many folk are now growing both D. sessilifolia and D. burmannii in their collections at the same time. In my area there is some pollinator that did it's work, and the hybrid between D. burmannii and D. sessilifolia is fertile as well.

    What this means is that pink flowered forms of D. burmannii have to always be a little "suspicious" especially if coming from a grower who has cultivated both forms. There are several places where populations of pink flowered D. burmannii are found, so it IS out there somewhere....maybe in your pot!!

    I have yet to see a photo of a white flowered D. sessilifolia though.
