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.
is a perennial carnivorous plant with a rosette up to 2.5″ in diameter that grows in very well draining sandy soil in Atherton Tableland, Lotus Glen and Mareeba of Northern Queensland, Australia. It can also be found growing among small shrubs and in open forest at the West Alligator River of Northern Territory, Australia.
Its green lanceolate petioles are narrow and linear with densely covered dendric silver hairs. These hairs become more predominant when the air and soil are dryer than normal (dry season/winter). This helps insulate the plant allow it to trap morning dew for additional moisture. The suborbicular lamina is green, pale orange or red, with with glandular tentacles on the upper surface that are longer at the edge than in the center. The bottom surface are is densely covered with white dendritic hairs. This species stands out from the other petiolaris complex species with some having dark maroon to dark purple traps with the upper leaf being the same color.
The inflorescence reaches 10″ in height and can have up to 30 white or pink flowers .4″ in diameter. Flowering occurs between January and March. The scape and the lower surface area of the sepals are also densely covered with white dendritic hairs.
Drosera lanata was first formally described by Katsuhiko Kondo in 1984 when he authored three new species of the D. petiolaris complex. The type specimen was collected near Mareeba on the Cape York Peninsula on March 28, 1982. D. lanata is closely related to D. derbyensis but defer from the dendric hairs.
