    Characteristic of D. hamiltonii is that the leaves unroll like a carpet. Most other rosetted species "unhinge" or "unfold". You can see the difference between the two plants. I can't recall the botanical terms for these processes at the moment.

    In any case D. hamiltonii is apparently self-incompatible so you would need genetically different plants to get seeds.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    admittedly it took me a couple tries to figure it out. lol. what inspired me to try was seeing how many insects my temperate plants had captured outside. now that I have/do feed my burmannii it does look nice...i suspect if i fed it more I may get a seedstalk from it.
