General Description
 
This variety of Cape sundew is a truly remarkable plant. Instead of the typical green, the entire plant is blood red. To maintain its extreme color, you will need to grow this plant in absolutely the brightest light possible. In fall and winter, its leaves may lose some of its redness, but it perks up again in spring and summer when strong light levels return. While the other varieties of Cape sundew prefer bright and cool conditions, this variety prefers bright and warm conditions.
Plants You Receive
Your plant will be shipped potted in a 3-inch pot and is expected to reach flowering maturity in 1-2 seasons. All plants were propagated on-site from proven mother plants in our collection.
