Drosera Kenneallyi


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. Also sign up for push notification by clicking the red bell located on the bottom left of the screen. We will announce when plants are restocked and when things go back to normal but you wanna be alerted when that happens so the plant you want doesn’t get sold by people who are signed up for push notifications. Also, like our FB page. We will announce some changes there a few times as well

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 kenneallyi –

is a perennial carnivorous plant that grows on sandy loam and sandyclayey soils containing laterite on grasslands, the margins found 3.1-mile radius around the Mitchell Plateau Airfield, woods of eucalyptus and malaleuca in Airfield Swamp, Mitchell Plateau, and Theda Station of Western Australia, and Fog Bay of the Northern Territory. The D. kenneallyi type found at Airfield Swamp shows an amazing unique adaptation to high water levels during during the months of January and February where flooding is prevalent. The plants there are submerged in high-temperature water, but the petioles are flexible and follow the rise and fall of the water level. The lamina float on the surface and continue to catch insects.

Its long narrow oblanceolate petioles are arranged in a compact basal rosette that lay flat against the soil and can range in color from bronze-green to red-bronze to orange. They are hairless on the upper surface and covered with a few non-dendric hairs on the lower surface. The lamina are typically red and transversely elliptical to broadly ovate in shape.

Inflorescences are 5–8 inches long with white flowers being produced on 10-20 flowered racemes.

Drosera kenneallyi is common within a 3.1-mile radius around the Mitchell Plateau Airfield in the Kimberley region of northern Western Australia. It was first observed and collected in 1982 by Kevin F. Kenneally, for whom this species is named. The species was formally described as a species in a 1996 issue of Nuytsia, the journal of the Western Australian Herbarium. It was then recognized as a species from the other members of Drosera subgenus Lasiocephala. D. kenneallyi can be distinguished from D. falconeri by its noticeably smaller leaves and shorter inflorescence, but the two species share many characteristics.

Natural hybrids of D. dilatato-petiolaris and D. darwinensis have been discovered in the Northern Territory and hybrids with D. aff. brevicornis are to be found in the Kimberly region of Western Australia
