I'm considering ordering some fresh Drosera cistiflora seeds from a European seller I've dealt with a few times. It's a winter growing Sundew with HUGE flowers. I'd like to give it a try but they are a little pricy with the added shipping cost. If I can get a few others that are interested, I can buy a few lots and bring the cost to about $5 shipped(US only)for 20+ seeds. It's almost the right time to plant the seeds with the weather about to start cooling down.

Please post here if you are interested.

Yes, I'm planning on getting them them from Petar Kostov. I already bought his 2016 Drosophyllum and D. Regia seeds. He has a great reputation and I had 100% germination with his 2015 Drosophyllum seeds. Thanks for the info.

I ordered the seeds today. Here is one of Petar Kostov's photos.

Even when it's not flowering, it looks like a great Sundew.

Beaver and Bhart, I'll contact you when they arrive, usually 1-2 weeks. If anyone else wants to try these seeds, I still have 40+ seeds not yet spoken for.

It seems there may be an issue with the USPS. I sent the D cistiflora seeds out to everyone several weeks ago. I also sent out VFT seeds and some rare Drosera Indica Complex seeds on the same day. It seems that no one that I shipped seeds to on that day has received anything. Please post here if you have or have not received your seeds. If you haven't received them I'll refund your money now.

I physically went into the Post Office to mail those seeds and have them check the postage for non-machinable letters. I only have a few seeds left or I would send new seeds to everyone. I apologize, I have no idea what went wrong.
