Hello, I must be going...

Drosera hamiltonii Esperance, SW Australia

This is a fairly easy to grow Drosera that makes a good companion plant for Cephalotus follicularis. It can be a little finicky and produce much dew at times. Most people grow these in shallow pots where they will multiply like crazy from offshoots. However I find that deeper pots (at least six inches) along with cool winter temperatures (40-50°F) may be a factor in flower development. Any typical "Drosera" mix - 50% peat moss 50% sand/perlite/pumice seems to suit them fine. Pure live Sphagnum moss works fine too.

This species gives all indications of being self-incompatible so genetically different plants may be required in order to produce seed. I'm hoping this is a different clone then the ones I have that are labeled simply as "Western Australia".


You are bidding on the largest plant pictured above (~1.25 inches in diameter). This was propagated from root cuttings and depending on the root development you may also get some of the smaller plants pictured. I won't know until I remove the plants from the Sphagnum.

Plant(s) will be shipped bare root. US only via USPS Priority Flat Rate. Shipping can be combined with other winning items. I cannot supply Phytosanitary Certificates. Winner pays shipping ($5.25 USD). Paypal preferred.

Start the bidding at $2.00. If the bids reach $15.00 I'll include a "Western Australia" plant (not pictured).
