    D. burmannii or D. sessilifolia

    I have a Drosera that I bought as a sessilifolia, but am now concerned that it may actualy
    be a burmannii. I let it flower and am collecting seed. If it is sessilifolia, I want to send
    the seed to the ICPS seed bank, as they currently have no sessilifolia seed.
    Since I have no experiance ID'ing them, I need the experts help. Here are the pictures.








    Sorry the pictures are super size, but I want as much detail as I can get for ID'ing it.
    I got it about 7-8 weeks ago.
    It has grown about 8-12 new leafs and has been in my terrarium under 2, 110 watt equivalant
    CFL's since I got it and has really gotten a nice red coloring lately.
    Thanks, Tom

    D.burmanni: leaves yellow-green, more triangular, flowers white, flower scape often with a curve at the base. D.sessilifolia: leaves orangish-yellow, more rounded, flowers pink, flower scape erect. (as described by bobz on the cp photo finder) ...there are also hybrids of the two.

    What about Drosera burmanii "Pilliga Red"? It has red tentacles.

    Nice plant and flower. I have a clump of what's suppose to be sessilifolia but it looks like it's just moss. Has no growth like that or even a small one like my burmannii .

    How do you tell if its a hybrid ? I have had difficulty telling if what I grow is burmanii or sessilifolia or a hybrid of the two. It is green in shade, and red in sun (only the tentacles), and looks just like the ones in the photos above. the flowers are a hint of purple and white.
