Drosophyllum Lusintanicum

by Kenneth » Sun Mar 03, 2019 11:45 pm

Any growers of Drosophyllum Lusintanicum? I found a good seller on Etsy who has seeds, I want to grow them and I feel they don’t get mentioned a lot. Please spill the beans, we all benefit from it! I’ve ICPS and CC about their care, but there has to be more!
I just want to be a Mach speed super creature.. Then and only then I can have every plant I could ever want.

I buy my Drosophyllum seeds from Petar Kostov on eBay.
I believe he is the #1 authority on this plant.
He has some how-to articles posted on his nursery's website.http://telopeanursery.com/articles_en.php

It is a bit neglected but it’s one of my favorites, and I think one of the most efficient trappers of insects with a powerful olfactory attractant as well as visual. They had some at the University of Washington botany greenhouse some years ago but had to remove them because they were trapping and eating the beneficial insects they had released there.
