|Germination||Drosera ordensis seeds will usually germinate in 30-90 days. The seeds will only germinate with light. Sow Drosera ordensis seeds on the surface of a Peaty seed sowing mix at about 15øC. 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.
Once germination is noted, plants should immediately be placed close beneath fluorescents. Be wary of exposing the seedlings to direct sunlight too quickly, although this is to be encouraged over time, along with a gradual lessening of humidity. Leave the seedlings sealed for a week after germination, and then crack the seal for longer and wider periods over time. Once the bag can safely remain totally open, transfer the pot to tray watering and begin normal culture under strong light indoors, or direct sun outdoors (with appropriate screening until acclimatization is reached). The germination can take longer. Be patient!
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 øC. 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 øC, 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.
