General Description
 
One word would describe this plant - spectacular! This plant, commonly called a multifork leaf sundew, has long slender red leaves that branches out numerous times. It's not unusual to see as many as 36+ points on each leaf, glistening in the sun. This plant likes it warm and sunny. As it matures, it produces a very large clump. Its leaves will drape over the pot and sparkle in the sun. An adult plant is a site to be seen!

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 two growing seasons.

Loves our sunshine August 26, 2017
Reviewer: Tim from College Station, Texas United States  
We are in Texas and it has been over 100 several days this year.  It loves it.  Catches lots of bugs and is growing like a weed.

drosera multifida,extrema August 5, 2017
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Ponce, Ponce Puerto Rico  
The shipment arrived promptly and the plants (one month later) are still in excellent health.  One complaint, though; the listings do not tell you if the plant is out of stock.  The pictures are great and the website is well organized, not cluttered.
