General Description Plants You Receive Quick Care Guide

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. All plants were propagated from select mother plants in our collection. They will reach flowering maturity within one to two growing seasons.

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.

Natural Habitat:
Coastal mountains of South Africa.

Type of Plant:
Tropical plant for indoor growing.

Size of Adult Plants:

3 inches across.

Partial sun with mild temperatures. A south window with several hours of direct sunlight is ideal.

Use mineral-free water or water low in minerals (less than 50 parts per million). Keep the soil wet by setting the plant in a dish of standing water.

Use 1 part peat moss and 1 part perlite (or washed river sand). Avoid fertilizers, regular garden soil, and compost.

Cold Tolerance:
Tolerant of cool temperatures, but protect from frost.
