My Grow/Want Lists
-The horticulturalist formerly known as Shortbus-
D. burmannii (Hann River, Kimberley, Western Australia). I love how these have been growing for me. First pic is from April 6th, second and third are from Wednesday and today respectively. These are supposed to be an all-red variety, but they've been eating so much in my care (cleaned their pot of springtails in their first two weeks) that they've stayed a cool lime green. I think I'll hold off for a bit and see what kind of color my lights can bring out in them.
I didn't know feeding plants could make them be more green to that extent. Maybe that is why my capensis red seedlings seemed to stop having any red coloration once I began to feed them. They have ended up getting way bigger though.
Come to me flies and crawling bugs. This plant wants to give you great big hugs
Aren't I pretty, don't I smell good? I'd come to you if I could
But I can't so you must come to me, I'm sure we will get along splendidly
Wow, beautiful photos! really healthy looking Burmannii you have there.
I've also got a few that germinated a few weeks ago. Can't believe how fast this species grow.

All of the plants I feed regularly tend towards lighter color, but yeah, I feed my burmannii and sessilifolia a LOT to keep them going through their endless flowering, so they tend to go much greener than the rest.
Thought I would add something.

@Tanukimo - Thank you! Burmannii / sessilifolia are some of my favorite plants to photograph. They always seem to look great in close-up.
