Approaching the world of carnivorous plants for the first time certainly also involves realizing how it is necessary to acquire a set of information and news regarding these plants in such a way as to create an excellent culture and then be able to cultivate them in the best of ways. ways.
Without a shadow of a doubt, often the purchase of a carnivorous plant derives from a passion that a person has towards these particular plants, but we must not forget how just as frequently, it is noted how carnivorous plants are used with a mere aesthetic purpose and , for this reason, they are not often grown in the right way.
Among the main methods of propagation of carnivorous plants we find, without a shadow of a doubt, also that of sowing.
So let's start talking about the seeds of carnivorous plants, in such a way as to guarantee a greater core of information in case you want to buy a specimen.
Semen is the product of an egg that has undergone a transformation after it has undergone a situation that is called fertilization.
One of the main characteristics of carnivorous plants, which must always be taken into account when you intend to start cultivation, is that of having a very small amount of water inside the pots.
In fact, a rather low level of water allows the seeds of carnivorous plants to be kept for a much longer time: it is a kind of hibernation period, before germination takes place.
Obviously, among the characteristics of the seeds of carnivorous plants that stand out the most we find the size: in fact, we often wonder how big the various seeds of carnivorous plants can be.
It is important to start by stating that the general dimensions of carnivorous plant seeds are quite limited and obviously differ according to the species they refer to.
Therefore, there is the possibility of finding in nature seeds of carnivorous plants with rather large dimensions (in this case a perfect example is that of Ibicella lutea), but also of medium size (the example that fits perfectly is that of the Sarracenia purpurea), while the seeds of smaller carnivorous plants are those belonging to Drosera intermedia.
The seed of carnivorous plants consists of three essential parts: it is the embryo, which is the most important component, from which the plant can then grow; then there is the nutritional tissue, containing plant components that the plant will feed on during its development and, finally, the integument, which externally protects the main organs of the carnivorous plant.
