Sundew drosera burmannii
Drosera burmannii is a species in the carnivorous plant genus Drosera that is native throughout parts of Asia and Australia and grows in sandy or gravelly soils in seasonal seepages where a thin film of water collects. It produces a rosette of small, wedge-shaped to round carnivorous leaves that are usually yellowish but become redder with age. Typically this sundew is an annual in nature but can live for many years if kept indoors. It is one of the fastest acting sundews and the leaves can curl around prey in seconds as opposed to some other varieties which take hours.
Note: These seeds are extremely tiny! It's just how they naturally are. Reading glasses are recommended to aid with seeing them, even for those who don't normally require glasses to read. The seeds are shipped in either a wax envelope, or folder within a small paper. Open carefully, and sprinkle onto the growing medium. Do not bury the seeds. Germination information is below.
Multiple packs can be ordered by adjusting the quantity above, or combine shipping with other seeds we offer.
Seeds per pack: 3
Germination: Sprinkle the tiny seeds on top of the growing medium. Do not cover them. Use a mixture of 30% sand and 70% peat moss. Cover the container with plastic to retain moisture. Place the container in very bright light at room temperature. Once the small plants begin to grow, slowly open the plastic a little each day. Use rain water or bottled water (use a spritz bottle while plants are small) to regularly water plants, but do not leave them standing on water. Generally seeds germinate anywhere from 1 to 3 months, but some stragglers can take up to a year.
