General Description
 
Drosera esterhuyseniae is a very close relative to Drosera aliciae, which is also a close relative to Drosera slackii. This hybrid is very vigorous in cultivation. Our mother plants is 3-4 inches in diameter and produces very gorgeous leaves throughout the year.

The parent plants are native to the coastal mountains of South Africa. As with many sundews from this region, this hybrid prefers cool conditions. A hot day is 80°. It also prefers lower light levels than it's cousins whenever the weather heats up. We've got the best growth and color when sheltering this plant from the hot summer sun. Otherwise, this plant can grow well in very bright conditions in winter when home temperatures are much cooler.
Plants You Receive
Your plant will be shipped potted in a 3-inch pot. Young plants are approximately 1-2 inches in diameter. All plants were propagated on-site from proven mother plants in our collection.

good little plant August 26, 2017
Reviewer: Tim from College Station, Texas United States  
This plant is growing well.  We shade it with taller sarracenia plants and it likes that protection from our texas sun.

Beautiful jewel of a plant January 15, 2017
Reviewer: Carson Trexler from Portland, OR United States  
I actually got two! The broad red petioles and its robust nature make it very promising. The plants are remarkably aesthetic sitting alone in the center of the pot, SNW doesn't fail to deliver.
