Floating Sundew: Aldrovanda Vesiculosa, Water Wheel Plant, Water Flytrap

Drosera admirabilis

Drosera admirabilis: Sow the seeds on top of a mix of peat moss and sand or perlite. Keep the soil mix moist and place the container in a warm, bright spot with temperatures around 70-75�F (21-24�C). The seeds should germinate within a few weeks. As the plants grow, make sure to keep the soil moist but not waterlogged, and provide them with plenty of bright, indirect light.

Some of plants may have very have specific germination requirements that may not be covered in these general instructions. 

Many seeds require pre-treatment before sowing which we try to list here when we can, but this information may not be present here.  Germination times and germination temperatures are to be a guide only.  Many factors can DRASTICALLY affect this.


It's always a good idea to research the specific germination requirements from multiple sources for each plant before attempting to grow them from seed.
