finding Drosera Glanduligera

by Gry » Wed Dec 09, 2015 9:02 pm

Hi.

I live in south Africa and for interest's sake, I was wondering, where would I be able to find some of these plants? The Drosera Glanduligera intrigues me a lot and I would like to get one later on
I may seem grumpy. I'm not. I'm just very critical about subjects I have tested and fiddled with myself. I'm always open to advice, but don't try to force me.

Depends if you can keep it cool. The main problem is, they are so hard to grow that I don't think I've ever seen anyone offer a live plant of it. The seeds are not only hard to come by, but also extremely difficult to grow. They grow during the winter (which I just found out), and have extremely short lives. You need the night temps to be right above freezing when trying to ge them to germinate. Plus, if you manage to germinate the seeds, you need to feed them a lot or else they will die. Also, they will bloom early if night temps rise above 7.7 celsius, effectively killing the plant (as they are annuals).

If you manage to come across some seeds, then I give you my best wishes. Even the right conditions people can't get them to germinate.
