|Germination||Drosera Paradoxa seeds will usually germinate in 30-90 days. The seeds will only germinate with light. Sow Drosera Paradoxa seeds on the surface of a Peaty seed sowing mix at about 15°C. Some people have been having great germination of petiolaris hybrids using milled long fibered Sphagnum, still getting germination eight weeks after the first seed germinated, while growing them on a south facing windowsill. Germination can take from 2 weeks to 2 years! Please be patient, you won’t regret it.
In winter (October-April), the plants must be placed close to a window (l5 to 20 cm) and at the same level. Keep the temperature between 15-20 °C. When the frost ends (May-October), you can leave the plants outside and place them on an east oriented windowsill. In summer, with a temperature from 20 to 30 °C, they can stay anywhere outside.
A group of tropical Australian species which live in constantly warm but irregularly wet conditions. This group has developed special strategies to cope with the alternately drier conditions. Many species, for example, have petioles densely covered in trichomes, which maintain a sufficiently humid environment and serve as an increased condensation surface for morning dew.
