    I like humor...

    So with these burmanni if u put a bug on their leaves they would instantly curl around it? amazing. Do these sundews need a dormancy period?

    Burmanii need no dormancy. Yes they would NOT pin the insect down hard just lightly until later then it finishes it off. Also There is one drawback to burmanii. It dies off every season I think. Am I right guys? I then must be reintroduced by seed. Nep.G.

    I think actually that burmanii can be kept growing for longer if it is not exposed to cold. Even faster than burmanii is d. glanduligera, which I think is the fastest of the genus. The seed of this one is hard to germinate though.

    My understanding (which IS limited) is that burmanni are loosely considered annuals. Thats one reason I have hesitated to get one. But I will probably end up with one eventually. There are still many on my "want list".

    That is the word I was looking for PlantAKiss. ANNUAL!! Yes Burmanni is an annual. It must be reintroduced by seed or leave or root cuttings,etc. Noah I have never heard of D.Glanduligera. Could you get a website with a pic.? Nep.G.

    No problem. It looks a little bit similar to burmanii. Also is an annual:
