Description

Gemmae season 2024 is here! 

Description
  • Drosera Micrantha - 10 Fresh gemmae 
Our Seeds

  • Gemmae are modified leaves only found on pygmy drosera and are generally only available during the autumn and winter months
  • These modified leaves act as a live seed or tiny seedling and usually germinates much quicker than ordinary carnivorous plant seeds
  • Fresh gemmae are packed in between wet paper towels to stay moist during shipping
  • As with our other seed orders gemmae are shipped in a padded envelope for protection
Sowing Guide
  • Sow gemmae as soon as it arrives as they do not store well 
  • Spread gemmae on fresh carnivorous plant soil or pre-moistened long fiber sphagnum moss and use a fine mist spray with clean water to ensure proper contact with the soil
    • Choose gemmae placement carefully as pygmy drosera have very fragile roots and are not fond of root disturbance and repotting
  • Fill a tray with approximately 0.5-1 cm reverse osmosis- or distilled water to keep the soil moist, and grow in a protected area with a couple of hours morning sun or bright artificial light
  • Pygmy drosera gemmae usually germinates within 2-4 weeks if conditions are favourable
  • Follow the guidelines in our general sowing instructions if you are new to carnivorous plants from seed
