    When I received it was dark red, now it is this orange red.



    I noticed that this particular species/hybrid does not turn red and grow large in my all-year-long-summer weather. It has been green, with at most gold tentacles, for me the whole year. Now that the weather is rainy and just warm (Singapore is 365 days hot at 80+degF), the plants are turning redder.

    I seen similar on D. burmannii "Sarawak". Small plant, very colourful. The Hong Kong form is much larger but no where near the colour of the sarawak form

    Every seed that you plant ,doesn't sprout.
    Every seed that sprouts, doesn't make it to maturity.
    Every cutting that you stick doesn't grow roots.
    Every cutting that roots doesn't grow to a small plant.
    Every small plant doesn't reach maturity.


    Who needs speelcheck?

    I was given this plant as D. burmannii 'red giant'. From Tamlin's feedback on its flower, it is more likely to be a hybrid than a pure burmannii. I have another form of burmannii (likely a hybrid too) and I am extremely careful that they do not cross pollinate.

    Btw, the plants are getting redder.

    Feel sorry for all the people that live in Humpty Doo. It is a town in Northern Terrority, Australia.

    I have D burmanni, Beerwah, QLD. It was green all summer long. I kept it on a N windowsill, and a covered patio with E and S exposure. I recently moved the plants into my garage grow rack where they are within 3" of 160W flourescent light (I cannot get any closer with the flower spikes). They are now turning a beatiful red. I will try to post some pics today. I am guesing I robbed them of appropriate light all summer, but they grew great - just green. Have you tried different light intensities?
    All proofs inevitably lead to propositions that have no proof. All things are known because we want to believe in them.

    Nice! I like how D. burmanii looks, especially that one.
    Hope the whole thing works out on finding out what it's parantage is, because i'd like to see that one as a nice correctly identifed plant in my collection
