Many of our stocks will be sold out due to the upcoming shortage of petiolaris complex. We have to spend all the resources we can on making seeds just so we can save this complex from going extinct. There will be species/locations that will not be sold out since we have many of them or if they are related divisions that we can’t make seeds from, so make sure to check any species you like to see if it is in stock. Some prices may have slightly increased since global supply will be very low.
We will still be selling Drosera petiolaris complex through two of our subscription plans. The DIAMOND and BLUE DIAMOND plan. The prices of these plans will not raise for the foreseeable future and is the best way to get not only a live Drosera petiolaris complex plant at a great price but will soon be the only way to obtain seeds as they will be even more rare pretty soon. We will not cancel your subscription no matter how rare the seeds become. Click here to check out our subscription plans
Sign up for restock notifications if a plant is sold out. We will be placing divisions up for sale every now and again and you’ll be notified once they are restocked. This situation will not last long since we will sow every seed we make right away so we can replinish all stocks. So sign up to be notified of the species you want because it will be first come first serve once restock notification are sent out.
is a perennial carnivorous plant that can be found growing in sandy soils of Barred Creek, Cape Leveque, Coulomb Point, Dampier Peninsula, Deep Creek, Derby, Lake Campion, Lake Region,
Roebuck Plains, and Taylor’s Lagoon of Western Australia to the north and northeast of Broome in the region of Kimberley. D. broomensis is the only petiolaris-complex found so far west in Australia, which explains its need to become so small and hairy while dormant during winter months.
The green linear petioles are arranged in a leafy rosette and grow semi-erect and erect. They’re pubescently covered with white hairs during the wet summer growing months, and densely covered in white hais during the dry winter dormant season. The lamina is suborbicular (nearly circular) and vary in colors of green to orange, sometimes they can even be red. The glandular tentacles are longer at the edge and shorter in the center.
One to four inflorescences emerge from the center and grow to 12″ in height, and produces 50 white to pink flowers of various sizes from February to March. The scape and the lower surface of the sepals are glabrous.
This species was first collected in 1891. It is closely related to Drosera petiolaris and differ from other related species by its glabrous inflorescence.
(Name origin: from the town of Broome, in Western
