    Tamlin,

    The plant that you sent me never exhibit the fast moving characteristic, but I saw the fast movement for the first time at Ivan's. It was quite a sight.

    Also, Ivan said that this species seems to do better in a sandy mix instead of in a more peaty mix.

    Since I posted this topic my Burmanii has produced a flower stalk about 1.5" high. I will be putting the seeds on the trading post when they ripen.
    I have two reds and a red x green (at least that is the way the seller describes them) coming this week. I will be interested in seeing them alongside my "green".
    Mine is growing quite well in 50/50 peat and perlite but I have a suspicion it would do just as well in peat/silica sand. However, my Pappy once told me...if it ain't broken...don't try and fix it. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Your Pappy is wise, and would do well with CP culture!

    Snowy why is that a so called "horror" and why don`t you recomend growing them from leaf cuttings

    Because IMHO, they are much easier to raise from seed and I don't think I could do a leaf cutting again even if I tried. I think it was just a happy accident that came out of tragedy.

    The horror part was watching my entire pot full of the species die within a couple of days. I'd given it up for dead when I noticed one or two still hanging on for dear life!
