    I've finally managed to capture the moving tentacles of D. burmanii. Below are two short videos of two different tentacles moving in real time after repeated stimulation:

    Very nice Ben. It's for this very reason that D. burmanii is one of my favorite sundews.

    On a side note, I fed a beetle to one of my D. burmanii yesterday to observe this movement. Always a pleasure to witness!

    Yup, even though slightly sadistic.

    Hmm, that's odd. I would have expected them to sprout within a week, even though I've never grown D. burmanii from seed. What're your conditions like Alex?

    ok 29 gallon terrarium. temps are between 75 and 80 all time. humidity is around 70. light...i dont know for sure but its enought for a capensis albino. that it gets its pink glands. its 2 30watt bulbs i think. the single seed i can find(they all went into darker colored LFS) is in the media of the capensis. it is about 4 inches away from the lghts...

    Seems fine, maybe the seeds were just defective or something. Unless the babies are trapped in the LFS.
