Urantia Carnivores Locations Cover

Drosera Derbyensis

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.

Drosera derbyensis

is a perennial carnivorous plant that forms one or more rosettes, with mature plants raised from the ground on a sort of bulb-like arrangement, formed by the accumulation of the old leaves. It grows in white sandy unconsolidated soil on flood ways or near river swells and rocky outcrops in Beverly Springs, Derby, Erskine Range, Gibb River, Prison Tree and Winjana in the region of Kimberley, Western Australia.

Its green oblanceolate petioles are both erect and semi-erect that are covered in white woolly non-dendritic hairs and divides into many rosettes from its root stalk. They are narrow and are even more narrow just before the lamina. The lamina is orbicular in shape and the colors range from pale red, red, pale orange or orange. The glandular hairs on the upper side are longer at the edge but shorter in the center, densely covered with white non-dendritic hairs on the lower surface.

Each rosette produces 1–4 raceme inflorescence, which are 10–14 inches long. Each inflorescence bears 30–50 white or pink flowers, accuring from March to June. The top of the flower scape and the bottom surface of the sepals are densely covered in white, non-dendritic hairs

This species was first noticed On 29 March 1988, in Boab Prison Tree, 0.4 mi from Derby, the area from which this species is named. D. derbyensis is closely related to Drosera lanata, but differs from that species by the non-dendritic hairs covering the leaves.

(Name origin: from the city of Derby, in Western Australia).
