D Burmannii Flowering

Calyx

Seed
Seeds from Willy has been growing well! Has started flowering I think due to the heat waves that's been hitting southern Ontario. It's a little bit worse for wear. I will be cutting future flower stalks that pop up.

Few things I've found:

1. When flowering, leaves of D. burmannii are less reactive to catching prey (leaves will not fold).
2. Smaller leaves
3. Mucilage production appears to be less and snap tentacle lengths seem to be much shorter.
4. Contrary to what some people say about this species, feeding doesn't reduce the red or golden coloring on the leaves. It's more or less due to the light intensity. I have 2 other adult burmannii that are currently flowering and their flower talks are green due to lesser light intensity.

Just a quick question: Would the flower stalk on this individual be considered an ascending scape?

Nice plant! Flowers take away a lot of energy from D. burmannii, that's why I like to cut the stalks on mine too unless the plant is very well-fed and ready for it.

I hope this one is ready!

These guys are such gluttons. They’ve helped me reduced the sphagnum gnat population but still need supplemental feeding, haha.

Any chance you'll be able to able to get some sessilifolia seeds or plants on your site? I'd be interested in growing them as well and then comparing the two species together.

Awesome, thank you! I initially placed 2 orders but then decided to get all 100 seeds. I don't mind paying the extra for the shipping but just send them in one letter in case if you're wondering.

Thank you again for taking up my request!
