    Alright I had a whole lot of burmanni and everything was cool. They flowered and died and I now have baby burmanni in all my pots and bogs, all is well.

    But, there is one burmanni that has fired out around six flower stalks so far and has made tons of seed. I've been watching this plant ever since it made it's third stalk and here is what it's doing. It grows basil shoots on the main plant just like a Nep. Then the basil makes it's own stalk and flowers. But before it dies another basil shoot forms on it and continues with its own stalk.

    So far this one burmanni is about an inch tall and it looks like a bunch of dead burmanni stacked on top of each other with a few live burmanni on top. I'm not worried about it at all because it looks healthy but out of about 200+ burmanni this is the only one that refuses to die. I'm wondering if this is common.

    I'll try to get a pic of it tomarrow (it's dark out now)

    Very weird. I haven't had a D. burmanii do that. They usually just get small and die once they flower.

    This is what happens to my burmanni as well. So, to answer your question, this would be uncommon from my observation, but in a very good way

    Here's a cellphone pick I took today. Sorry about how blurry it is but you can still see all the spent flower stalks and the dead leaves under the new growth and the newest stalk. That live stalk is #8!! I wonder if this is a record...

    I have one that's doing that, it's on rosette #3 but I think it's on it's way out... On the bright side, it's produced enough seed for about five 4-inch square pots. Good luck with yours! You should separate the seed from that specimen and see if the offspring have that characteristic as well.
    Best luck,
