Drosera scorpioides is rather large for a pygmy sundew and can grow over an inch in diameter. Native to south western Australia, dry summers will cause D. scorpioides to go dormant. However, active growth will resume in the fall when moisture increases and temperatures return to moderate levels. During this time, the plant will produce several modified leaves called gemmae. The gemmae are spring-loaded by small hairs which cause them to burst into the air when struck by raindrops. After landing, the gemmae quickly grow into new plants.
Size and packing method: Plants come potted in 2 inch pots. Each pot contains 1-2 plants about 0.25 – 0.5 inches tall.
