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.

Reviewer: jeff from Spartanburg, SC United States  
I figured since its winter they would be more dormant, but they have already sprouted new stalks (if that the correct term) and ate growing great
