Drosophyllum lusitanicum seed

Availability: Out of stock

10 seeds per packet. Drosophyllum lusitanicum, the Portuguese "dewy pine," a striking and unusual carnivorous plant that grows in soil and climate conditions that would kill most carnivorous plants. (More information below.)



Drosophyllum lusitanicum, sometimes called the dewy pine, is a strange carnivorous plant that grows naturally in relatively dry, alkaline soil (most carnivorous plants grow in moist, acid soil). NOTE: Drosophyllum germination rate and time can be increased by scarifying the seed, which means exposing a small portion of the inside of the seed by gently and shallowly scratching (as with sandpaper) or cutting the tough seed coat. Be careful not to damage the inside of the seed. Additional germination instructions can be found at the International Carnivorous Plant Society website: Germination of Drosophyllum Lusitanicum Seeds and on the FlytrapCare main site: Drosophyllum lusitanicum

Awesome service!
Seeds came packaged very nice! Planted 11 seeds and within a week and a half later, 4 broke their seed coats. Now I have some nice seed grown droso's of my own to grow. Will purchase more! Thank you!

As an update, I sowed 5 or 6 of the seeds I got, so far 1 has germinated. I unfortunately did not realize that these guys like to germinate in the cooler months so I am trying to trick the rest into germinating. Nonetheless, even if I only get the one, I'll be happy with that! So far my one seedling is doing very well and growing like a weed under florescent lights. Soon I will harden it off and move it outside.

Great So Far!!!!
Mine have not germinated yet- I will post back after they do(usually I wait), but I wanted to comment on the speed of service, quality of product, and the quality of service. This is my second order now with flytrapstore, I ordered 10 seeds and recieved 12 in the mail (Which is good, because when I was scarifying them, two fell to the carpet never to be seen again). I cannot comment on the germination rate but I can tell you that these seeds are very clearly fresh- I have full faith that they are viable.
Both times I have placed an order with flytrapstore, I have gotten a brief handwritten thank you note at the bottom of my invoice thanking my for my order and a set of instructions included. Small acts like these really hint at a level of respect for customers not often seen these days. I fully intend to continue to order from this company, I have been very pleased thus far and highly recommend them.

Thanks Matt, Steve, and Leah!
