    I just had a reply from my friend Joao. He did indeed send me the original seed, not that this resolves this mystery, for as I said, all my plants from this line have always been white flowered. I would regard the pink flowered form as a probable hybrid with D. sessilifolia favoring the D. burmannii form, since there is no other real way to account for this happening.

    This discussion is very interesting for me as I recently have a D. burmannii that has pink flowers as well. (Sorry for the blurry stalk picture.)

    The plant either came from Noah's D. burmannii "red tenacles" seeds or seeds from a UCDavis P. 'Aphrodite' pot. I think it's 80% chance of the former.

    Very interesting Emesis. My plants are also D. burmannii 'red tentacle'. My understanding is that Joao had no sessilifolia in his collection at the time he grew the plants so no crossing there. However William may have had sessilifolia around so thats a possibility.

    I wonder if 'red tentacles' has a tendency to, on rare occasions, throw pink flowers without having been crossed with another plant? It will be interesting to see if the seed from the pink flowers produces white or pink flowering plants. I will have to keep track of any seed that goes out.

    Thanks for adding that and the pics. Are your flowers pale pink or bright? Mine are a very bright pink.

    Hey Jan...how big is that burmannii red plant? It looks kinda like sessilifolia.

    Hmmm...interesting photos... thanks for posting them.

    Okay, I've corresponded w/ Ivan Snyder on this matter. (Ivan introduced D. burmannii from Beerwah, QLD, AUS.)

    Ivan Snyder wrote, "I have seen both white and pale pink flowered D. burmannii. My Beerwah plants have pale pink flowers. Noah's plants are likely the Beerwah form. One thing I have noticed on my Beerwah plant when harvesting seed is a sticky resinous substance on the sepals. It has a feel like the sticky plant known as Catchfly, genus Silene and Lychnis. I don't know if any other sundew has this."

    PAK, the "red" is quarter size and was given to me as a burmanni red...which according to the way this discussion is going doesn't mean much.
    Perhaps William could shed some light. I just knew you couldn't stay away from the fourums Tamlin. welcome back.
