Nice! This one will get to be a weed in your collection ;-)
"Grow More, Share More"
Those came out well! Thanks for the plants!
They certainly are weedy, William. Like D. madagascariensis
I've heard that D. sessilifolia is supposed to grow slower than D. burmannii. The opposite has been true so far. They aren't as prone to regression while blooming either. Does anyone have plants that behave differently?
I'd be interested in trading for other forms, BTW.
I have got some seeds,are they the same way to grow as D.burmannii?
The plants pictured were growing next to some D. burmannii, Rex. I grow them in trays under fluorescent lights.
Gorgeous! just amazing.
Taproot, Anti-Flag, The Casualties, Alkaline Trio, Eleventeen, Deadsy, AFI...what's not to love?
I hope someone will answer the questions I have about this species.
First, I noticed Tamlin mentioned this plant will become a weed, I would like to know if it reproduces through seeds or do new plants come up from the roots? My second question is how can you tell the difference between D. sessilifolia and D. burmannii? Thanks so much for the info.
D. sessilifolia propagates extensively through seed. The main difference between sessilifolia is their native location: at almost opposite ends of the globe. D. sessilifolia grows in south America, while D. burmannii is native to Australia.
In habit D. sessilifolia is generally much redder in coloration. It is also more compact than many D. burmannii clones. Thirdly, I find the undersides of D. sessilifolia laminas to be much more glaborous than those of D. burmannii.
D. burmannii compared to D. sessilifolia:

I disagree. To my eye, the undersides of D. sessilifolia lamina look hairy, or pubescent, if you prefer. The D. burmannii from Beerwah, QLD have lamina with nearly glabrous undersides, but not quite; they still possess a few fine hairs.
