This sundew is one of the most beautiful sundews in our collection. It has long, thick dew leaves with graceful undulations. In very bright sunlight, its leaves turn crimson red. In regular household lighting, its leaves turn bright pink with a delicate splatter of green towards the center of the plant. As the plant matures, it forms a dense cluster that is very eye-catching.
This species is native to Brazil and is gradually making its way into widespread cultivation.
