Waterwheel Plants (Aldrovanda)

NOW AVAILABLE AS TURIONS!!! Winter buds are available to end of March only!

Some carnivorous plants from cool, alpine and arctic regions (Aldrovanda, Drosera, Pinguicula, Utricularia) survive adverse conditions during winter as a dormant bud; hibernaculum (sundews, butterworts) or turions (Adrovanda, aquatic bladderworts). The plants usually start to produce these resting buds during autumn, when leaves or aquatic shoots are reduced into one central bud 0.3-1.5 (3) cm in diameter. Some species also produce several (1-30) adventitious buds (0.1-0.7 cm) at the base of dying old leaves. With the coming of warm weather in spring, both the buds start to grow and slowly develop into the mature plants.

Hibernacula, adventitious buds and turions are shipped during the autumn and winter to prepare for the onset of spring. As soon as turions arrived, they should be put into water. You must assure cool conditions (0-5°C) are maintained e.g. in a fridge or cold room. In spring place them in suitable cultivating conditions, where they will start to germinate and grow.
