    Since it's annual, can burmanii be easily reproduced/maintained by doing leaf cuttings?

    @shortbus: easiest is through seed. like i said earlier, the plant will self pollinate itself without your aid, though you can up your seed count by manually pollinating the flowers and feeding the plants extras. i havent heard of any successful attempts to propagate the plant via leaf cuttings (i've heard certain pygmies can).

    I've never heard of anyone doing leaf cuttings on burmanii. My impression is that it wouldn't work too well, if at all, given that it is an annual plant. I agree with the majority here, that growing from seed is the best way. It may also be the only way to propogate the plant; but it self pollinates, so no worries!

    Thanks for the replies guys. As always great info from great people! I am convinced of it's potential to become a weed and will wait to expand the collection to include it. Beautiful sundew, but space is always an issue and I do alot of merciless scape cutting to avoid seeding. Unless, that is, I need to get an ID on something. Expect my future giveaways to be plants more so than seed, lol.
