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 10 inches tall.

Typical plants produce pink flowers, but a very rare form has white flowers. 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.

Reviewer: Doug Klaus from Campbell, CA United States  
I have been buying plants for over 10 yrs from Sarr NW.   I'm now to the point where I am picky about what I purchase as the originals have all done so well and multiplied several times over.  They know how to do it!!!  Best cp supplier that  I  have shopped from!

Reviewer: Tim from College Station, Texas United States  
I received a very robust and healthy looking plant. It was packaged nicely for shipping. After a short period of adapting to my central Texas heat, the plant is sprouting new growth and doing very well.
