Germination of

Drosera nitidula

Pygmy Sundew - Drosera pygmaea, Dwarf Sundew

Drosera nitidula

Drosera nitidula: Drosera nitidula seeds should be sown on the surface of a container filled with a mixture of peat moss and sand in equal parts. The container should be placed in a tray of water, covered with a clear plastic bag or lid, and kept in a bright location out of direct sunlight. The seeds need to be kept moist at all times, so make sure the container doesn't dry out. Germination should occur in 1-2 weeks, after which the container can be uncovered and moved to a location with bright, indirect light. Keep the seedlings moist but not waterlogged.

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.
