Almost all carnivorous plants can be propagated by seed.
This doesn't mean that it's the most efficient method for the home grower.
In many species, cuttings from leaves, stems or roots may be a preferable
alternative to growing from seed, and may yield faster results as well.
Plants grown from seed often take longer to reach maturity than those
propagated from adult plant material. That being said, one can often create
a far greater number and diversity of plants by way of seed, if you're
prepared for the challenge.
We offer a limited selection of seeds for
sale, with availability varying with the season. Pygmy Drosera gemmae are
also available in the late autumn/early winter. Our current offerings are
below. Please see "The
Ordering Process" page for more information.
From various species
The tiny pygmy sundews of southwestern
Australia are beautiful little plants that produce rosettes of
carnivorous leaves like their larger non-pygmy cousins, but also will
produce clusters of tiny seedlike modified leaves called "gemmae" in the
winter. These gemmae, pop off of the plant when touched and can form a
clone of the mother plant wherever it lands. This is, by and large, the
easiest and preferred method of growing pygmy sundews. However, because
gemmae are only produced in the late autumn/early winter, their
availability is strictly seasonal.
- 5+ gemmae - $5
Drosera roseana - 10+ gemmae - $5
