    Is this right?

    Here is my list of plants. Since most are Drosera, I'll post this here. The (D) denotes the ones I think go dormant. Are they right and do any on the list need special growing conditions?
    My plan is to keep the tropical varieties in one aquarium and the temperate in another.
    Plant list:

    Pinguicula
    P. lusitanica
    P. primuliflora


    Drosera
    D. adelae
    D. aliciae
    D. bifinada (D) [invalid name]
    D. capensis
    D. dielsiana (3)
    D. filiformis (red) (D)
    D. intermedia
    D. nitidula spp. allantostigma (D) [invalid name]
    D. sessilifolia
    D. spatulata (2)
    D. spatulata (frasier island)


    Sarracenia
    S. purpurea (2) (D)
    S. rubra (D)


    Dionaea
    D. muscipula (4) (D)


    Nepenthes
    N. ventricosa


    Seed list:

    D. filiformis (fl. all red) (D)
    D. indica (green form)
    D. burmannii (Beerwah, Queensland, Aus.)

    Thanks for the help!!!

    thanks for the help, Alex. I don't know what the D. intermedia is, but if a photo will help...

    It's only a few hours since it was recieved, shipped bare root. Should I cut the flower bud, or if it opens, would that help in ID'ing it?

    Drosera indica and Drosera burmannii are summer growing annuals. They should die off soon after flowering.

    im guessing its just the typical form....and yes that needs dormancy

    NaN: ive had D. burmannii before that has sent up 8 flower stalks before.....then survive 3 hard frosts. and flower once more is that normal? haha

    Drosera burmannii should actually be classed as a biennial so going two or three seasons is not unusual. Most of the time it is lumped as an annual probably to keep people from having too much expectations.

    They can go many years by clipping the stalks before they flower.

    Any suggestions on the D. intermedia as far as dormancy is concerned? Pop it into the fridge, let it grow, something in between?
    Thanks, Tom
