    What are the differences between D. sessilifolia & D. burmanni?

    I've been growing D. sessilifolia (from ICPS seed) for a few years but after looking at the photos in Bob's CP photo finder, it looks like D. sessilifolia has slightly more rounded traps...

    D. sessifolia[Edit: D. sessilifolia] is native to South America and burmanii[Edit: D. burmannii] Australia. you wouuld have to ask someone who has grown both but I can say that D. sessifolia[Edit: D. sessilifolia] has a higher germination rate and higher rate of survival (100% for both so far ulike D. burmannii 0%)

    From what I understand, D. sessifolia[Edit: D. sessilifolia] is a smaller plant than D. burmannii. Tre, my limited experience is that D. burmannii germinates like D. capensis, if ya know what I mean. Twice I have had high germination rates. In contrast, D. sessifolia[Edit: D. sessilifolia] seeds was 0 %. But that was my experience and limited at that.

    Basicaly, D.sessilifolia has more rounded leaves, usually erect scapes, and pinkish flowers, while D.burmannii has more cuneate leaves, usually white flowers and ascending scapes.

    See ya,

    How fast do the tentacles of Drosera burmannii actually move?

    Not sure how one would answer that question. I doubt too many people have measured it for a cm/sec speed or anything...

    When a plant has snared/captured/detected prey in the center of a trap, the outermost tentacles move at a very observable speed toward the center of the trap and the prey. These outermost tentacles are very long in relation to trap/plant size and are impressive with their motion.

    Most other Drosera that move seem to do so at a more glacial pace - you go away for a bit and come back and you can notice that the plant has moved

    So with this particular plant, if you were to sit and watch it, you'd actually see movement in the tentacles? I know with my sundews, the whole process is relatively slow and takes from about 15 minutes to an hour.
