General Description
 

Drosera madagascarensis has a wide distribution, from Madagascar and South Africa to Congo, Guinea and Nigeria. It grows from a single stem that often rambles along the soil surface. The growing section is approximately 2-3 inches long with orange-yellow leaves. As the sundew grows, the older section will turn brown. The plant produces flowers that seem to self-pollinate and set seeds. (We sometimes find volunteer seedlings in other pots of sundews.)

Grow this plant in a sunny and warm location.


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.

Please watch the monthly video podcast for examples of how your plant may look at this time of the year and important growing tips for the season.

So far so good February 8, 2018
Reviewer: Aaron from Fort Morgan, CO United States  
Have had the plant for a month now, appears to still be recovering from transport. Dew production has yet to kick in but there is a bit of new growth getting ready to open. Sarracenia NW does a fantastic job with packaging and shipping any plant you purchase and have done a great job in responding to any of my questions and providing guidance.
