Drosophyllum lusitanicum, also known as the Portuguese Sundew (or Portugese Sundew) or the Dewy Pine Plant is native to the southern coasts of Spain and Portugal. It has adapted to a harsh, arid environment, and is unlike other carnivorous plants you might be familiar with.
Seed stock location data: Near Ubrique, Andalusia, Spain
Seed-grown plants from seed sourced at the location listed. Please note: The Dewy Pine cannot survive root disturbance. It cannot be repotted, and it cannot be shipped bare root. It is extremely difficult to ship, requiring elaborate packing materials. There will be an additional handling charge for time and materials added at checkout.
The practice of growing seedling Dewy Pine plants in terra cotta pots and planting them, pot and all, in a much larger pot is known as Slack Potting. This is usually done after they have established themselves (usually about the 7th or 8th set of leaves). This method will require you to provide a large outer pot, 12 inches or greater, with additional potting medium. These are available immediately and are ready to Slack Pot upon receipt. Full instructions will be sent along with your order.
