General Description
Hercules is a recent addition to the family of hybrid cultivars, registered with the International Carnivorous Plant Society in March 2018. It is a cross of Drosera capensis var. alba and Drosera aliciae. It has stout, wide, oar-shaped leaves. The plant also displays excellent hybrid vigor - fast growth and extraordinary resilience. Provide mild temperatures and bright sunlight to appreciate the full potential of this plant.

As a recent introduction into cultivation, the supply of this plant is extremely limited.

Beautiful plant! November 12, 2018
Reviewer: Bonnie from Port Angeles, WA United States  
It arrived in great shape and was packaged well. The plant itself is gorgeous and a good sized specimen, not a tiny seedling like some places sell.
