    Ohhhhhhh, SASE=Self Addressed Stamped Envelope!

    Please forgive how dense I am [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    In that case, yes, I'll take some Burmanni seed. Just PM me with instructions.

    I have found that it takes about 9 months to 1 year from sowing seed to flowering D. burmannii. But I have also seen the plants that I cut the flower stalk off live for longer then two years, I cannot state that they will live indefinatly but I have a few that are about 3 years old. I usually let half of them flower to get seed and the other half I chop so I always have mature plants.

    Wolf did you keep them inside in a terrarium in the winter ? Mine are growing under lights inside. The are only 3-4 mm big right now from seeds sown mid april. I assume they don't require a dormancy but should the photoperiod be adjusted or left 14-15 hrs so flower induction is not encouraged ?

    Does this plant require a lot of sunlight? I have them in a shaed area because I'm afraid they'd be washed off by the heavy rains I have here if I put them in full sunlight, they being so small.

    In any case, my plants are flowering but the stalk seems to lean against the tank (yes it's in a tank which is in a shaded porch -- no artificial lights) and its tentacles are pale/white/transparent... signs of lack of sunlight?

    For that matter, I haven't actually seen its flowers open but the pygmy sundew beside it has its flowers open.

    Mine are growing well outdoors in full sun.

    There is a white and a red form, chances are you simply have the white form, I wouldnt be too worried.

    Hey Drosera,

    I keep mine inside on a rack with lights above them no terr, and I dont adjust the photoperiod at all. I leave it at 15 hrs all year round and they flower just fine, I just cut off the ones I dont want seed from. Once they start to flower they seem to continuosly put of stalks.

    Cool, sounds like a plan. Inside under lights they will stay ! Right now the birds seem to want to pick out my D. binata fledglings from their hanging basket. I didn't want to tempt them with any more free meals.
    Thanks

    1-2 months?? D. burmanni lives quite a bit longer than that. My experience has been more along the line of Wolf. Approximately 9 months or so, longer if you don't let it flower itself to death.

    Do not shy away from burmanni because of its being called an "annual." Its a very beautiful drosera, one of my favorites. And even if it does die off, it makes copious seed so you always have lots of seedlings growing. Its a nice cycle. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
