Drosera Seed

  • Sold By: Carlton Carnivores
    One of the quintessential beginner carnivorous plants, and one of the better ones to try if it's your first time with seeds. This species can grow to over a foot across (though usually 4-6 inches) with semi-erect, strap shaped leaves colored bright yellow-green with red tentacles. The leaves will actively move when stimulated by prey, wrapping around whatever is fed to or caught by them. Typically prolific in blooming, when happy they will send up hairy, foot long stalks with numerous very large, self-pollinating pink flowers. Packets contain 30-50+ seeds each. This species requires no special treatment for germination, and grows in a variety of conditions but will do best in sandy soils in cool, strong light environments. Seeds are shipped in padded envelopes to avoid damage in transit, via USPS mail. US shipping only. As seeds can take time and sometimes special treatments in order to germinate properly, returns cannot be accepted and refunds are not available upon receipt of the seed packets. If a package is lost in transit, please contact as soon as possible.

    Both at once, and maybe more! Because the trait for the cultivar 'Albino' is recessive, these seeds will produce both typical-form, 'Albino', and what appears to possibly be a heightened red version of cape sundew. Plants will mature at 5-12 inches in diameter, with stems bearing erect rosettes of strap-shaped leaves in a variety of colors, and similarly flowers will be pink or white, all self-pollinating. Packets contain 50+ seeds each. This species requires no special treatment for germination, and grows in a variety of conditions but will do best in sandy soils in cool, strong light environments.

    A beautiful and diminutive form of this species, producing rosettes usually only around an inch in diameter with the typical set of triangular, overlapping wedge-shaped leaves. As the name suggests, under most conditions the leaves stay bright green but the edge and snapping tentacles color bright scarlet (though when stressed or under very strong light the leaves may blush as well). The tall, wiry stalks bear several tiny flowers which sometimes never produce petals and simply set seeds, other times will produce delicate petals with the lightest of pink tinges. As an annual species, this one likes heavy feeding and needs to have new seeds sown to maintain colonies after adult plants die off. Packets contain 75+ seeds each. This species requires no special treatment to germinate, and grows best fed heavily and kept in hot tropical conditions with very strong light.

    This locality from Florida is known for producing a couple of distinctive forms of D. capillaris. This form is the flat rosetted version, growing to around 2 inches across on average with paddle shaped leaves bearing thin glabrous petioles and, when fully mature, very broad, triangular to near-rounded lamina (similar to D. burkeana). Coloration is attractive, petioles usually staying green but can blush red, and the lamina typically a bright crimson to nearly poppy red. Short, wiry stalks are produced most often in summer that bear several small, delicate light pink self-pollinating flowers. This species is great as a singular display plant, or developing carpeting colonies. Packets contain 30+ seeds each. This species requires no special treatment for germination, and tolerates a wide range of conditions but will do best in very warm, wet, strong light environments. Seeds are shipped in padded envelopes to avoid damage in transit, via USPS mail. US shipping only.

    One of the so-called "spider-leaved" sundews, D. serpens is an Australian-Asian species that develops scrambling stems that can exceed a foot in length, alternately bearing long filiform leaves up to 4 inches in length that spread up and then out as they grow. This variety stays primarily green under all conditions (though the tentacles may blush reddish), and when fed well will produce short stalks from the stem bearing moderately large, bright lilac-pink blooms. This is a great species for singular display, or in a colony, and is an annual so reproduces only through seeds. Packets contain 30+ seeds each. This species requires no special treatment to germinate, and grows best in wet, sandy soil in hot, strong light environments.

    This fantastic Asian species develops two different kinds of rosettes; young or stressed rosettes may be around 2 inches in diameter and lay flat on the ground, with moderately thin oar-shaped leaves; mature plants in good conditions will switch over to rosettes that can be 3-4 inches across with semi-erect leaves with much longer petioles and stretched obovate lamina curving up toward the sky. Under good lighting, color is a rich olive green with scarlet tentacles, or solid crimson to wine red. Very thin, wiry stalks are produced when mature, bearing moderately, large, very spaced out light pink flowers with notably rounded petals. This is a great species for singular display, though they will occasionally divide or bud off old leaves to form colonies. Packets contain 30+ seeds each. This species requires no special treatment to germinate (though may take some time), and grows best in cool, wet, strong light environments (though can tolerate heat fairly well). Seeds are shipped in padded envelopes to avoid damage in transit, via USPS mail. US shipping only. As seeds can take time and sometimes special treatments in order to germinate properly, returns cannot be accepted and refunds are not available upon receipt of the seed packets.

    Created by the (in?)famous Ivan Snyder, this variable variant of D. spatulata is a cross of 3 localities/varieties: Wentworth Falls x Woronorra River x var. gympiensis. Rosettes are relatively flat an average around 1.5-2 inches in diameter, with evenly tapered wedge-shaped leaves bearing very short petioles, and under good light they can readily turn wine red. Flower stalks bear many traits of var.gympiensis, being held at an angle and fairly short, sometimes hairy, and producing large clustered flowers at the tips. Blooms may turn out a rich pink, or pure white. This is not a dividing, clumping form typically, but seeds can be sown to form a carpet colony. Packets contain 40+ seeds each. This species requires no special treatment for germination, and grows best in warm, wet, strong light environments. Seeds are shipped in padded envelopes to avoid damage in transit, via USPS mail. US shipping only. As seeds can take time and sometimes special treatments in order to germinate properly, returns cannot be accepted and refunds are not available upon receipt of the seed packets.

    Yes, this is a cultivar that can be propagated by seed. 'Tamlin' has potential to be large, rosettes known to occasionally exceed 4 inches in diameter; when young the leaves remain fairly flat to the ground, but fully mature adult plants will develop elongate, tapered wedge-shaped leaves with a semi-erect, "jointed-middle" profile, and under any good light will flush a bright crimson color. Wiry stalks will produce numerous small, self-pollinating white flowers on a regular basis. Packets contain 50+ seeds each. This variety requires no special treatment for germination, an grows in a wide variety of conditions but best in hot and bright tropical conditions.

    This locality of D. serpens is a somewhat shorter and more heavily colored version than the common form. Plants may reach up to 8 inches or so in length, with thick stems supporting filiform leaves up to 4 inches long that spread out in all directions. Under strong lighting, color starts out bright green but will blush with age to pale and rich reds. When fed well, short curling stalks will be produced along the stem that bear large, brilliant pink broad-petaled flowers. As an annual, this species requires sowing new seeds to maintain the colony when old plants die off, and are great for either singular display or colony setups. Packets contain 30+ seeds each. This species requires no special treatment for germination, and does best in wet sandy soils in hot, very bright environments.

    One of the most distinctive D. spatulata varieties, this northern Australian taxon develops rosettes between 1.5-2 inches in diameter of flat, narrow strap or wedge-shaped and bright lime-green leaves with red tentacles (and sometimes a nice red blush as well in the leaves themselves). It is most famous however for its flower stalks, which are short, often held just above or at the soil level, and incredibly hairy, with relatively large and metallic hot pink self-pollinating blooms stacked practically on top of each other at the end. Not typically a plant to divide often or bud off old leaves, seeds can be sown to develop an attractive carpet. Packets contain 40+ seeds each. This species requires no species treatment for germination, and grows best in warm tropical conditions with strong light.
