    I've heard that after it's done flowering, it dies and comes back by tons of seeds, but if grown well enough, it can live longer. Not 100% positive, though.

    No, it does not go dormant; it goes dead. Though sometimes plants have been known to live for multiple seasons.

    My D. burmannii flowered nine times in two seasons before it looked like that. It's dead now, unless it pops out more leaves. Then feed it and it may grow back like mine. It wasn't strong enough to last this season, though.

    maybe try some pullings while it's still green??

    Usually the copious seeds it produces should make it a pest when done right- a buddy of mine has them in almost every Sarr and Nep pot in his collection

    Mabudon: They don't strike from leaf-cuttings. Mine were failures, or else my D. burmannii would still be here.
