Drosera dilatato-petiolaris

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

Drosera dilatato-petiolaris

is a carnivorous plant that grows one or more rosettes in damp sandy soils (sometimes on laterite in open forests) of wet depressions near sandstone outcrops of coastal areas of Arnhemland, Berrimah, Berry Springs, Channel Island, Darwin River, Humpty Doo, Nhulumbuy, Palmerston, and West Alligator River in the Northern Territory and the northern Kimberley region of Western Australia. It can also be found on sand in eucalyptus forests in Cape York Peninsula, Queensland.

Its oblanceolate to linear petioles are erect or semi-erect, which are typically green but can turn red when grown under intense light. There can be pubescent to desne white hair present depending on the humidity in which They emerge from the center in a rosette and commonly produces plantlets, known as divisions, or “growth points”. This causes the plant to grow in large patches consisting of many clumps. These large clumps can grow 1 ft across. Its orbicular lamina are orange or red. The glandular tentacles are present on its upper surface, which are longer at the edge and shorter in the center. The underneath surface is pubescently covered with long, white hairs of both being non-dendritic and dendritic.

The inflorescence reaches 8″ in height and poduces up to 20 white or pink flowers, which occurs from April to October. The scape and the lower surface of the sepals are covered with white hairs.

Natural hybrids are known from the Northern Territory, crossing with D. falconeri, D. kenneallyi, D. darwinensis and D. aff. lanata.

(Name origin: from the Latin dilatare = to enlarge, and petiolus = petiole, with reference to the large petiole)
