I'd like to thank plantnerdjules for her most recent gift. She has donated eight packs of D. finlaysoniana. We just ran out of this one, so it's nice to get it back in stock.
Fun fact: If you go for a walkabout with your best Sheila or Bloke (no judgement) looking for tucker, watch for bankers in the outback. However, by the bankers might be the best place to see finlaysoniana in situ. Pros and cons baby!
Plantnerdjules, thank you for your continued generosity.
These seeds are immediately available to all eligible members.

If you are a newer grower, take a suggestion from me; you need this plant!
D. finlaysoniana is an absolute killer beast of a plant.
It grows to over a foot tall tall in one season, mine made 14 inches tall in one year.
It produces a sweet smell, almost honey-like, that attracts bugs from miles away.
Put yours outside and it'll be covered in bugs within a week, it's one of the most voracious killers that I've grown.
All those bugs translate into more growth and more seeds than you can imagine.
It's only downside is that it is an annual plant, it grows, flowers, sets seed, and dies, in the course of one year.
I'm germinating seeds for my 2023 crop of Drosera finlaysoniana right now.
Get yours while you still can!

What humidity and temperatures can they handle? Do they have any special requirements?

^^ Shadowtski had them growing very well outdoors in Wisconsin and mine grew very well outdoors in north Queensland tropical owland conditions... looks like they are not too fussy about conditions!

Can they handle high temperatures and low humidity? More specifically, 90+ degrees Fahrenheit and 25%> RH.

The high temperatures are no problem at all.
The species comes from Tropical and Sub-Tropical areas.
Attached is a map from: https://biocache.ala.org.au/occurrences ... ab_mapView
They occur naturally in a wide range of conditions.
They were happy outside in a Wisconsin Summer, humidity is up and down and all over the map.
