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 that grows in sandy soils, often over dark, fine-grained volcanic rock that sometimes displays a columnar structure formations near streams orponds, and its habitat is often covered by shallow water during the wet season, and is the eponymous species of the petiolaris species complex, which mostly refers to the entire subgenus Lasiocephala (petiolaris-complex).
D. petiolaris is widely distributed around Darwin, Howard Springs, and Noonamah of Northern Australia. They can slo be foud growing around the northern regions of Western Australia. There are also more to be found around, Endeavor and Lockhart Rivers of Northern Territory, and Queensland, and New Guinea. This distribution is the largest in the subgenus and the only that extends beyond Australia.
The linear petiole consists of a rosette made from erect and semi-erected leaves, with a color ranging from green to red. They can reach 6″ and are usually covered with lightly pubescent white hairs in the juvenile stage, then become hairless as it matures. Lamina are held at the end of the petiole with long retentive glands. The suborbicular lamina is red or orange ut I jav esen many rare cases where they can be full green. There is glandular tentacles on its upper surface that longer on the margins than are in the
center. The lower bottom surface is lightly covered with both simple and sometimes
dendritic form white hairs.
The inflorescence can reach 8″ and contain many pink or white flowers, each are about .4″ in diameter. The scape and the lower surface area of the sepals are covered with white hairs. On rare occasions, it is possible to find clusters of juvenile plants at the top of the flower scape.
Drosera petiolaris was first formally described by the Swiss botanist Augustin Pyramus de Candolle in the first volume of Prodromus Systematis Naturalis Regni Vegetabilis in 1824. In this description, de Candolle cited an unpublished description by Scottish botanist Robert Brown as a basis for his valid description of the species. The type specimen was collected at the Endeavour River in Queensland by Joseph Banks and Daniel Solander on the first voyage of James Cook aboard HMS Endeavour.
A natural hybrid with D. fulva is known
