Drosera scorpioides

by Shadowtski » Fri Sep 01, 2017 9:53 pm

Here are a few shots of Drosera scorpioides, an Australian Pygmy Sundew.

This is the only Sundew that likes my growing conditions.

Hopefully, it will produce Gemmae this fall so I can share this species.

Good growing,
Mike

This one's always a late producer for me, I see gemmae around February.

Oh wow, how big are they? They really look like tiny affinis (Affini?)!! Do you need to give them dormancy?

They're about an inch tall, 2.5 cm, maybe a little more. They'll grow in height as they grow a stem, sort of like a miniature D. madagascariensis.

Good growing,
Mike

Those are some pretty happy and awesome looking sundew Mike. You're starting to make me a big fan of Drosera (I'm still not turning to the dark side though). I may have to get myself some seed when it's available.

Nice! I've been growing them for years. Mine usually starts making gemmae in November and December.

Lovely plant Mike . One of my favorite pigmy . I haven't had the chants to grab one yet. I read somewhere that the only last a few years so you need to plant gamma to keep your colony going. Is the true?

What are your growing conditions? I just purchased one and want to prepare everything for its arrival.

They will last a few years and get taller each year. I always plant new gemmae each year though. I had a 4 year old one but it starts getting too tall.
