    D. burmannii

    I have read on some websites that D. burmannii can be grown longer than a year if the soil is kept damp year round. Is this true, or is it just a rumor? I have alot of D. burmannii right now and I'd like to keep them growing as long as possible. Thanks!

    Well I don't think that's true since my D. burmannii lasted about 18 months and the soil was'nt
    always wet.The most important thing to keep them longer is cut of thee flower stalks.
    Good Luck,
    Adrian

    after about 8 months they get leggy and unatractive even if you keep the soil wet and flower stalks cut.. i just let them grow, flower, set seed and wait for the next generation. if given good heat and light they will also send up WAY over 1 stalk...more like 6-10

    These can be biennials meaning they could go through two full growth seasons before completing their life-cycle. Depends on the conditions. They can grow longer if you clip the flowers. However you should let them set seed at some point as they will eventually die. Seed will ensure you will still have a continuing supply of plants.
