    One of the so-called "spider-leaved" sundews, D. serpens is an Australian-Asian species that develops scrambling stems that can exceed a foot in length, alternately bearing long filiform leaves up to 4 inches in length that spread up and then out as they grow. This variety stays primarily green under all conditions (though the tentacles may blush reddish), and when fed well will produce short stalks from the stem bearing moderately large, bright lilac-pink blooms. This is a great species for singular display, or in a colony, and is an annual so reproduces only through seeds. Packets contain 30+ seeds each. This species requires no special treatment to germinate, and grows best in wet, sandy soil in hot, strong light environments.

    A beautiful and diminutive form of this species, producing rosettes usually only around an inch in diameter with the typical set of triangular, overlapping wedge-shaped leaves. As the name suggests, under most conditions the leaves stay bright green but the edge and snapping tentacles color bright scarlet (though when stressed or under very strong light the leaves may blush as well). The tall, wiry stalks bear several tiny flowers which sometimes never produce petals and simply set seeds, other times will produce delicate petals with the lightest of pink tinges. As an annual species, this one likes heavy feeding and needs to have new seeds sown to maintain colonies after adult plants die off. Packets contain 75+ seeds each. This species requires no special treatment to germinate, and grows best fed heavily and kept in hot tropical conditions with very strong light.

    This locality of D. serpens is a somewhat shorter and more heavily colored version than the common form. Plants may reach up to 8 inches or so in length, with thick stems supporting filiform leaves up to 4 inches long that spread out in all directions. Under strong lighting, color starts out bright green but will blush with age to pale and rich reds. When fed well, short curling stalks will be produced along the stem that bear large, brilliant pink broad-petaled flowers. As an annual, this species requires sowing new seeds to maintain the colony when old plants die off, and are great for either singular display or colony setups. Packets contain 30+ seeds each. This species requires no special treatment for germination, and does best in wet sandy soils in hot, very bright environments.

    One of the classic "rainbow plant" species, and also one of the largest. This taxon will develop scrambling, branching stems that may measure several feet in length, covered in filiform leaves and the entire plant coated in various length sticky tentacles. Under good light, plants will often blush with purple-red, and when fed heavily may produce one to several, or in some cases dozens, of large, electric violet flowers with contrasting bright yellow anthers in the middle. These are more or less annuals, though they can be grown from stem cuttings many times, and new seeds are best sown to continue a colony. Packets contain 15-20+ seeds each. This species requires GA3 or smoke treatment in order to trigger germination, and plants are best grown in large pots with sand wet soil in hot, strong light conditions. Seeds are shipped in padded envelopes to avoid damage in transit, via USPS mail. US shipping only. As seeds can take time and sometimes special treatments in order to germinate properly, returns cannot be accepted and refunds are not available upon receipt of the seed packets.

    Perhaps the easiest of the "rainbow plants" to grow, this species reaches an average of 5-10 inches tall, covered in filiform leaves about 2-4 inches long and the entire plant coated in sticky glands. Plants will produce one or two flowers at a time, each with delicate narrow lavender-violet petals and bright yellow anthers in the middle. A self-pollinating species unlike most of the others, this annual will re-seed itself (though it can also be re-established through stem cuttings). Packets contain 30+ seeds each. This species does not require special treatment to germinate, but faster and more reliable results are found with GA3 or smokewater soaks, and they grow best in wet, hot conditions with strong light but will tolerate a wide range of conditions.

    Once considered to be a possible new carnivorous plant group, Proboscidea and its relatives are now relegated to para-carnivorous at best, or more commonly "murderous plants." This species can get large, adult plants measuring several feet across with multiple branches, leaves held on thick petioles and roughly spade-shaped. At the ends of each branch spikes of large, fleshy, 5-lobed flowers form, typically pale pinkish mauve in color with darker spots and a yellow stripe leading into the throat. These flowers also have two-lobed stigmas that move when touched, the lobes folding together to capture pollen or avoid damage. All parts of the plant are covered in tiny, sticky glandular hairs that regularly capture small insects (defense against gnats and aphids) and will attract small assassin bugs that feed on the victims. Pollinated flowers develop unique pods that, when young, can actually be harvested and cooked as a vegetable, but when mature shed their fleshy outer coating and the narrow tips split to form a pair of wickedly sharp hooks used to snag animals and carry them about to disperse seeds (occasionally crippling the animals, and thereby providing the seeds with fertilizer). Seed packs will contain approximately 10+ seeds. These seeds appear to have a fridge-storage shelf life of only a few years, so sow quickly at the start of the growing season. Please note: Proboscidea louisianica cannot be shipped to Washington State. Seeds are shipped in padded envelopes to avoid damage in transit, via USPS mail (First Class or Priority). US shipping only. As seeds can take time and sometimes special treatments in order to germinate properly, returns cannot be accepted and refunds are not available upon receipt of the seed packets.

    A hybrid between the two perennial rainbow plant species, this is a large carnivores with leaves that can reach more than a foot in length on a thick stem that can also reach a foot or more in height over time (even branching with age). They can grow year-round if kept moist and cool enough, or may go dormant during the summer season, dying back to sprout again from the stem and roots. Flowers are huge, nearly 2" across and a brilliant violet coloration. Two or more different clones are needed to pollinate, but it is potentially a species that might be propagated via stem cuttings. Current stock includes primarily seeds of a backcross to lamellata.   Packets contain 8-10+ seeds; this is a fire-adapted species that needs special treatment to germinate, a 4-6 day soak in 500-1000 ppm GA3 solution recommended.   Seeds are shipped in padded envelopes to avoid damage in transit, via USPS mail (First Class or Priority). US shipping only. As seeds can take time and sometimes special treatments in order to germinate properly, returns cannot be accepted and refunds are not available upon receipt of the seed packets.
