General Description
 
This variety of Drosera filiformis is similar to the typical form, but instead of the typical green, v. floridana has dark red leaves. In time, the plant will produce a crown up to an inch across and leaves up to 8 inches tall. Give this plant lots of sunlight to maintain its beautiful red leaves.

In winter, the leaves will die back, and the plant will form a resting bud sitting at soil level. Growth will resume in mid-spring.
