    Often mislabeled as D. dielsiana, this South African species is an easy and attractive plant. Rosettes may reach 1.5-2 inches in diameter, with flat leaves bearing thick petioles and broad oblong lamina. Under decent lighting color is a rich olive green to solid wine red. Tall, wiry and glandular stalks bear several small self-pollinating blooms with delicate narrow pink petals. Occasional budding from the roots or division will develop carpet colonies over time. Packets contain 40+ seeds each. This species requires no special treatment to germinate, and grows best 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.

    It's tiny, it's weedy, it's cute; the only real trouble with this species is remembering to feed it regularly so it makes lots of seeds! This annual butterwort is native to western Europe and the Mediterranean region, and often doesn't even exceed an inch in diameter when full-grown with short ovular leaves that often sport impressive red veins. The self-pollinating flowers are tiny and tube-shaped, with white petals and a purple tube and spur. To germinate, just sow on wet soil and wait. Packets contain approx. 30+ seeds. Seeds are shipped in padded envelopes to avoid damage in transit, via USPS mail (First Class). US shipping only.

    A pygmy sundew that well and truly lives up to its name; mature plants may not even reach 1/2" across, developing tiny rosettes of paddle-shaped leaves that remain entirely green save for a yellow-orange tint to the tentacles. Hundreds can fit in a carpet in a two-inch pot, and unlike other pygmies, this one isn't quite so sensitive to root disturbance. Flowers, if produced, are delicate white. Packets contain 20+ gemmae each. Drosera gemmae are shipped wrapped in moist paper towels and plastic packs to avoid drying out, shipped via USPS First Class mail. US shipping only. If you are expecting detrimental weather that may impact survival of the gemmae, please contact me immediately when ordering; if otherwise damaged upon arrival or package is lost in transit, please notify immediately to arrange replacements where possible.

    A hybrid between the two perennial rainbow plant species, this is a large carnivores with leaves that can reach more than a foot in length on a thick stem that can also reach a foot or more in height over time (even branching with age). They can grow year-round if kept moist and cool enough, or may go dormant during the summer season, dying back to sprout again from the stem and roots. Flowers are huge, nearly 2" across and a brilliant violet coloration. Two or more different clones are needed to pollinate, but it is potentially a species that might be propagated via stem cuttings. Current stock includes primarily seeds of a backcross to lamellata.   Packets contain 8-10+ seeds; this is a fire-adapted species that needs special treatment to germinate, a 4-6 day soak in 500-1000 ppm GA3 solution recommended.   Seeds are shipped in padded envelopes to avoid damage in transit, via USPS mail (First Class or Priority). 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.

    Once considered to be a possible new carnivorous plant group, Proboscidea and its relatives are now relegated to para-carnivorous at best, or more commonly "murderous plants." This species can get large, adult plants measuring several feet across with multiple branches, leaves held on thick petioles and roughly spade-shaped. At the ends of each branch spikes of large, fleshy, 5-lobed flowers form, typically pale pinkish mauve in color with darker spots and a yellow stripe leading into the throat. These flowers also have two-lobed stigmas that move when touched, the lobes folding together to capture pollen or avoid damage. All parts of the plant are covered in tiny, sticky glandular hairs that regularly capture small insects (defense against gnats and aphids) and will attract small assassin bugs that feed on the victims. Pollinated flowers develop unique pods that, when young, can actually be harvested and cooked as a vegetable, but when mature shed their fleshy outer coating and the narrow tips split to form a pair of wickedly sharp hooks used to snag animals and carry them about to disperse seeds (occasionally crippling the animals, and thereby providing the seeds with fertilizer). Seed packs will contain approximately 10+ seeds. These seeds appear to have a fridge-storage shelf life of only a few years, so sow quickly at the start of the growing season. Please note: Proboscidea louisianica cannot be shipped to Washington State. Seeds are shipped in padded envelopes to avoid damage in transit, via USPS mail (First Class or Priority). 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.

    Native to much of the western US, this is a cold-hardy biennial semi-shrub that lives its first year of life as a spreading rosette of heavily lobed, velcro-texture leaves. In its second year it grows anywhere from 2-5 feet tall, branching heavily and producing at the end of each branch one to three night- to morning-blooming flowers that can be nearly 6 inches across and are brilliantly lemon yellow, with a spray of filiform stigmas sticking out of the middle. These flowers are followed by odd cylindrical pods with the same velcro-like texture as the leaves, and each contain numerous flat blackish seeds. Sowing a handful of seeds two different years can ensure establishment of blooming generations every year. Packets contain approx. 30+ seeds, and require a 2-3 month cold stratification to germinate. Seeds are shipped in padded envelopes to avoid damage in transit, via USPS mail (First Class or Priority). 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.

    A small, delicate pipevine that is quite easy to grow; plants may mature at less than a foot long, with leaves around 2" wide with a fan-shaped array of silvery veins on deep green. Flowers may be no more than an inch or two across, with a bulbous base and curving neck  that spreads into a flared, fimbriated opening; anthers and stigma are within the base, so for pollination one must cut into the side of the bloom and differently aged blooms pollinate best. Packets contain approximately 10 seeds; no special treatment is required to germinate. Seeds are shipped in padded envelopes to avoid damage in transit, via USPS mail (First Class). 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.

    One of the classic "rainbow plant" species, and also one of the largest. This taxon will develop scrambling, branching stems that may measure several feet in length, covered in filiform leaves and the entire plant coated in various length sticky tentacles. Under good light, plants will often blush with purple-red, and when fed heavily may produce one to several, or in some cases dozens, of large, electric violet flowers with contrasting bright yellow anthers in the middle. These are more or less annuals, though they can be grown from stem cuttings many times, and new seeds are best sown to continue a colony. Packets contain 15-20+ seeds each. This species requires GA3 or smoke treatment in order to trigger germination, and plants are best grown in large pots with sand wet soil in hot, strong light conditions. 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.
