General Description
 

Drosera madagascarensis has a wide distribution, from Madagascar and South Africa to Congo, Guinea and Nigeria. It grows from a single stem that often rambles along the soil surface. The growing section is approximately 2-3 inches long with orange-yellow leaves. As the sundew grows, the older section will turn brown. The plant produces flowers that seem to self-pollinate and set seeds. (We sometimes find volunteer seedlings in other pots of sundews.)

Grow this plant in a sunny and warm location.


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.

Please watch the monthly video podcast for examples of how your plant may look at this time of the year and important growing tips for the season.

Great shape, took shipping like a champ June 18, 2018
Reviewer: Marco Wende from Chula Vista, CA United States  
The plant (or should I say plants) arrived in perfect condition. I placed them in their new home as soon as they arrived and they didn't even flinch. They have tons of little dewy leaves on and many more growing. Definitely would buy again!
