    They don't always behave like annuals. It all depends on your climate. In my climate, they don't die during winter, just slows down growth.

    That's true larry.. they can grow for more than a year (Indeed, they do here sometimes as i live in the tropics) but never consider this species as a perennial. The plants are short lived and wont grow for more tha 1 or 2 years under normal circumstances.

    I am not saying that this is an absolute, your own experience may be quite different from my own.

    But, from my experience, any effort to keep them from flowering is often a wasted effort. They can often pour even more effort into blooming if their initial efforts are interfered with.

    That's strange, my D. burmannii doesn't look like any of the pictures posted here or in the ones in the wild Sundewrex posted. Mine looks like the 'green' posted in this thread but the petioles are longer, thinner and become round at the ends where the tentacles protrude. The entire plant is green except the glands at the tips of the tentacles which are red.
    DOH!

    By observation in the wild,D.burmannii will have different shapes and color according to the season and surrounding area.I guess the red form and the red x green form may be are the same species.you can put a all-green species closed to the light,and put a red species away from the light for a month,you may find the answer [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/rock.gif[/img]

    Hi,

    here are two pictures from my plants from last year. Both are grown side by side under the same conditions in my Greenhouse. They obviously have different colors. I have never grown, what is called a 'green form', but is suspect, there are really some forms, that stay green, no matter how much light they get.

    Hi,

    this is what *I* would call a 'red form' . The 'green forms' never get red, even in the strongest sunlight (maybe lack of anthocyanin ??). If you don't provide enough light to any of these plants, they will all stay green.
