    Drosera Burmanni

    Location:N Australia,India,Asia-Tropical to Subtropical climates.

    Ok to grow this species u have to live in a warm climate if u want to keep it long. Can't tolerate temps below 10 degrees celsius(fifty degrees fahrenheight).
    Must be kept wet in summer and allowed to dry out in winter. Many of the tropical species experiance a dormancy during winter, with the entire plant drying out above the ground and survivng underground,similar to a tuberous sundew. Environment these species needs include the wet and dry seasons. The dryseason being warm and totally deficent of any rainfall for five months-the dormancy period. The wet season brings the onset of near continous rainfall and humidity between 70%-95%-the growing period.
    pot in a sandy mix,about 50%sand,50%peat.
    watering:keep pot in a tray of water during summer. Keep pot only moist during winter,removing it from the tray.
    It says this sundew is an annual so i guess that means it only lives for a year....it doesn't seem worth the work to me...

    Many annuals self-seed easily but not sure if that applies to d. burmanii. If an annual seeds itself then they wouldn't so bad to grow. Or for that matter, if you can collect the seeds and sow them yourself.

    Drosera burmannii will self-seed itself in cultivation. The seed is one of the most tiny Drosera seed I know.
