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 is a perennial carnivorous plant that forms one or
more rosettes and grows in sandy soil near sandstone outcrops where the soil remains moist near Berkeley River, Beverly Springs, Boab Springs, Cave Springs, Egret, Kununurra, Lake Argyle, Mirama, Mulligan Lagoon, Ning Bing Ranges, Ord River, Pago, Parry Lagoon, Stonewall Creek, Weaber Plains, and Wyndham in the northeastern tip of Western Australia. They can also be found around Keep River National Park and Timber Creek in the Northern Territory region.
The oblanceolate petioles are long and typically flat. They are sometimes green during the start of the beginning to the wet season, then becomes covered with a dense pelt of white hairs as the season progresses. Other ttimes, they are densly covered with white hairs from the time they’re seedlings. Both the upper and lower sides of the leaves are covered in hairs. This species can also get very tall and wide. A. Lowrie reported that he has found a giant form near Kununurra with a diameter up to 8″. I can concur with his finding as my D. ordensis ‘Kununurra, Kimberley’ (13 km West) have gotten 8″ wide and 6″ tall. It seems that all forms divide regularly to form clumps. The suborbicular lamaina can be red, orange or yellow, and sometimes almost pure green. It has glandular tentacles on the upper surface that are longer at the edges than in the center. Its lower surface is also densely covered with long white dendritic hairs.
The inflorescence can reach 18″ in height and carries many crowded flowers, from white to pink in color and with a diameter of up to 6″. Flowering occurs between December and April. The scape is covered with long, white, dendritic hairs, so are the lower surfaces of the sepals. Occasionally, at the start of the flower scape, it is possible to find clusters of juvenile plants.
