BUTTERWORTS: Grow your own carnivorous plants from seed 


  • SEEDS: Butterwort > Pinguicula Lusitanica
  • Pinguicula Lusitanica, commonly known as the pale butterwort, is a small butterwort that grows wild in acidic peat bog areas along the coastal regions of Europe and a few locations in North Africa
  • It usually forms rosettes 3–5 cm across and produces small whitish flowers
  • Butterwort seed lose viability fairly quickly and we would love to offer you the best possible chance for successful germination.  Fresh seeds are crucial in butterwort world and therefor these seeds are only available on our store for a limited period since the original listing

    • Even with proper storage, seeds will inevitably age as the embryos wither.  This aging process decreases the number of viable seeds or rate of germination
    • In order to give you the best possible chance at successful germination, we only sell fresh butterwort seeds - harvested within the last month
    • The seeds we sell are either imported from trusted sellers (including reputable nurseries and private growers) or are harvested from our own plants
    • With so many imitations online, all our seeds are genuine carnivorous plant seeds - We guarantee it
    • Starting and nurturing your very own carnivorous plant jungle can be extremely rewarding and we regularly conduct random germination tests on the seed available for purchase
    • Growing carnivorous plants from seed requires a lot of patience
      • Under optimal conditions, butterwort seed usually germinate within 4-8 weeks and may take approximately 3-4 years to reach maturity
      • It is highly recommended to do some research on specific needs prior to placing your seed order, as like with any plant you will grow from seed, we can never absolutely and conclusively guarantee germination
    • As this process is mostly a waiting game, it is recommended for the adventure carnivorous plant enthusiast looking for a challenge on the next level

        • Our instructional reference guide includes complete sowing instructions for both temperate- and non-temperate carnivorous plants (a link to this reference will be sent via e-mail on completion of your order)
        • Pinguicula Lusitanica seeds do not require any kind of stratification to germinate, but as they are warm-temperate plants, it is advised to sow them, as fresh as possible, during springtime when grown outside a temperature-controlled environment  
        • There are hundreds of carnivorous plant species, cultivars and varieties around the globe. The internet has some great resources and we highly recommend doing some research on the growing conditions required for each species.  Studying this information, prior to your purchase, would be in your favour
        • Conditions differ and as with any other plant you will ever grow from seed, a range of factors may affect germination.  Naturally, we can never absolutely guarantee germination, but we can guarantee one of the most important factors with regards to germination rate:  FRESH SEEDS
          • When available the harvest date will be recorded on the seed packet
