Pygmy Species

The pygmy sundews are found virtually solely in Australia. As the name suggests, all are small in stature, but contain some of the most beautiful members of the genus. Most are easy to grow, in full sun and stood in rain water in the summer months, and damp over winter with a minimum of 7 degrees Celsius (45 degrees Fahrenheit). Over the winter months, they produce a number of vegetative buds called gemmae, which can be removed and sprinkled on the soil surface where they will grow to produce a clonal specimen of the adult plant. THE RECENT HIHGH TEMPERATURES HAVE MEANT THE PLANTS ARE SMALLER THIS YEAR THAN USUAL.
