General Description
 
This variety of Cape sundew is a truly remarkable plant. It has dark red leaves and dark red flowers. To maintain this level of redness, you will need to grow this plant in full sun conditions. In fall and winter, its leaves lose some of its redness, but it perks up again in spring and summer when light levels are stronger. While the other varieties of Cape sundew prefer bright and cool conditions, this variety prefers bright and warm conditions.
Plants You Receive
Your plant will be shipped potted in a 3-inch pot and is expected to reach flowering maturity in 1-2 seasons. All plants were propagated on-site from proven mother plants in our collection.

First Carnivorous plant order January 14, 2018
Reviewer: Mark. from Sparks, NV United States  
Absolutely blown away by the quality of the plants, and almost more impressed with Sarracenia Northwests packaging.
Plants arrived in perfect condition.  And are now thriving.
I will be ordering more in the near future.
