    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.

    A putative polyploid hybrid species that is thought to have originated as D. oblanceolata x spatulata, this taxon is among the easiest sundews to grow. Rosettes around 2.5 inches in diameter possess thick oar-shaped leaves with distinct petioles and teardrop-shaped lamina, held semi-erect just off the ground once mature and colored a deep olive green to wine red in good lighting. Wiry stalks are produced regularly and bear moderately large, bright pink self-pollinating flowers. Packets contain 30+ seeds each. This species requires no special conditions to germinate, and will grow in a wide variety of conditions but does best in hot, tropical and bright environments.

    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. 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.

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.

    This is one of the classic beginner's species, and an impressive one still. Plants develop rosettes up to 3 inches in diameter, with semi-erect tapered wedge-shaped leaves that under good lighting readily flush bright red. Flower stalks are produced almost constantly, bearing small self-pollinating white blooms, and the plants will often bud off roots and old leaves, developing colonies. Packets contain 50+ seeds each.

    The most classic beginner's sundew out there, this is the plant so rampantly mislabeled as D. spatulata in common garden centers and even some specialized nurseries. Plants may grow to around 2 inches in diameter, with flat rosettes of distinctly spoon-shaped leaves (narrow petioles broadening into more or less teardrop-shaped to rounded lamina) that are bright green with red tentacles to solid crimson in strong light. The tall, wiry stalks bear several small, self-pollinating hot pink flowers, and plants often divide and bud off old leaves to form dense, clumping colonies. Packets contain 50+ seeds each. This species requires no species treatment to germinate, and will grow in just about any environment you can grow carnivorous plants in.

    Often mistakenly labeled as coming from Mount Roraima, this tropical form of D. intermedia is an ever-growing, easy species for a collection. Rosettes may reach up to 3 inches in diameter and rarely develop stems, with an erect to semi-erect pincushion arrangement of thin paddle-shaped leaves. Under strong lighting this form may even take on a distinctive reddish tinge, unlike many temperate forms which may remain mostly green. Once mature short wiry stalks are produced almost constantly and bear several small, self-pollinating white flowers. A great plant for a solitary display, they will also sometimes bud off old leaves and form loose colonies. Packets contain 30+ seeds each. This species requires no special treatment for germination, and grows best in warm to hot tropical and strong light environments.

    This variant of D. burmannii is famed for its color.

Flower stalks can reach more than  foot high an bear numerous tiny white blooms. As a naturally annual species, this plant needs to be fed very well and seeds sown regularly to maintain a colony. Packets contain 75+ seeds each. This species requires no special conditions to germinate, but needs regular feeding to reach maturity. Germination and growth is best under hot tropical conditions and strong light. Seeds are shipped in padded envelopes to avoid damage in transit, via USPS mail. US shipping only.
