Excellent Quality

Received 15 gemmae and had a 100% success rate. These seem to grow much faster with high humidity and the included pot and dome works really well for growing them and minimising water loss.

Cultivo's COMPLETE grow-your-own SEED STARTER PACKSย 


  • We are proud to present another member in our range of COMPLETE SEED STARTER PACKS for carnivorous plants
  • A fantastic gift idea and perfect for beginners, this tailored starter pack includes everything you'll need to grow your very own pygmy sundews from gemmae - Just add water!
  • Unfortunately, the flowers of pygmyย Droseraย rarely produce seed.ย ย Exclusive to this group of sundews, Pygmy drosera instead forms small brooding bodies (called gemmae) during late autumn for asexual propagation. These brooding bodies are actually modified leaves that act as tiny plantlets (or live seeds!) just waiting to sprout when conditions are favourable
  • Growing pygmy droseraย from gemmae is aimed at the adventure grower and a lot of patience is required - Pygmy drosera gemmae do not store well and it is advisable to sow them as soon as possible.ย  Root development usually occurs within only a couple of weeks followed by (already cute and sticky!!) sundew leaves on top of the soil surface
  • This seed starter kit includes:
    • a complete growing container,
    • premixed germination soil for your new seeds and
    • a full instruction leaflet
  • PLUS
    • 1 seed-packet containing a minimum of 10 Pygmy drosera gemmae,ย  harvested on the day your order is sent
    • The gemmae will be a random selection / mixed varietyย of pygmy drosera depending on what we have available

Having fun?

We have a variety of kits available in our GROW-YOUR-OWN range

  • Just a quick heads-up: since plants are natural products, you might notice some slight variations when unboxing your plants
  • We do our best to make sure the plants you receive look like the ones in the photos, but keep in mind that seasons change and plants grow. Some leaves might fall off, new ones might sprout, and the plants may look a bit different over time
  • 99% of what we sell are one-of-a-kind collector items, so you will receive the exact plant pictured. The labels are spot on, so even if the plant looks a bit different, we 100% guarantee it's the real deal. Also, all the photos you see are of our own plants unless we mention otherwise. We update images occasionally to keep things fresh. If you want to see updated pictures before you buy, just let us know โ€“ we're happy to help!
