    Drosera burmanii

    The inflorescence stalk of my D. burmanii is as of today over 7 inches tall (actually it has a support 'cuz otherwise the weight may uproot the plant) and has over 12 blossoms developing...
    However... The irony!
    The plants seems to be dying!
    I assume it is 'cuz it is hard for it to sustain itself and the flowers... At first it though it was a matter of time before the lowest leaves started to witter, but then more and more, today about 70% of the leaves are dead or dying, and I don't think the ones developing will be enough fort he plant... Suggestions?

    D.burmanni are annuals so, it may just be at the end of it's life span.

    But... Well, it does make sense... However...
    Why to make an inflorescence just before going dormant?
    Shouldn't it be storing energy instead of making flowers?

    It's probably dieing, not going dormant. They're annuals, that means that the plant only lives for a year or so then it dies.

    Awh... THAT type of annual...
    Dammit...
    Does that mean I'll have to polinate the flowers to see if I can get some seeds out of it?

    They self pollinate. Hopefully the flower stalk will live long enough to bear seed.

    Hmm... I certainly hope so...
    How poetic... Bearing seed as it's last act in life...
