Drosera cistiflora pink (100 seeds)


Out of stock

Drosera cistiflora Pink.  It is a perennial carnivorous plant. Elongated, spear-shaped leaves (20-40 mm x 4mm) which taper from top to bottom are scattered along the stem, usually alternately. Some plants form a primary basal rosette which has more narrowly elongated oval leaves. Plants are variable in growth forms and some do not have a noticeable basal rosette. The erect stems are unbranched and 100 to 400 mm high. Leaves are sessile and the stipules are hardly noteworthy or absent. A single or a few large white, yellow, mauve, pink or purple to dark red flowers are borne from August to September. Sowing: Use a soil mix of 50% peat moss and 50% perlite. Make sure the soil is completely moist. Use a 4-inch pot if you are sowing a small pinch of these seeds. Sprinkle your seeds evenly over the soil and very gently tap them down. Keep your pot in standing water. Use a tray or a bowl to set your pot in, and fill it up with water. Keep the water line no more than half way up the pot. Use water that is low in minerals. Keep the air temperature between 75° and 85°F for optimal germination. Locality: Pringle bay. Harvest: January 2024
