Drosera x Carbarup, is a medium sized, and easy-to-grow pygmy sundew. It forms a loose rosette of traps that have thin green petioles and salmon colored traps, and red tentacles.  It is very pretty.  It keeps its traps year round. It prefers a sunny, humid spot with sandy-peat soil in the growing season, and drier, but not totally dry soil in the winter, when it goes dormant. It flowers mid summer with numerous pale pink flowers. They do not seed readily in cultivation. It does however, produce numerous gemmae in the winter, which can be harvested when they darken slightly. The gemmae can be sown immediately on the surface of the pot, or stored cool and damp for a short period. D. pulchella is a hardy little guy.

D. x Carbarup is a naturally occuring hybrid, D. nitidula nitidula x occidentalis.  The occidentalis subspecies may be australis.

This selection comes from gemmae and are identical to the parents.

Note: All pygmy sundews, by their very nature, are quite small, smaller than a dime. They are called pygmies for a reason.
