General Description
 
One word describes this plant - spectacular! Drosera multifida extrema is a type of fork-leaf sundew, and like its relatives has long slender red leaves that branch out multiple times. But on this special plant, it's not unusual to see as many as 36+ points on each leaf!

Drosera multifida extrema (say that five times fast), a native to the wetlands of Southeast Australia, likes it warm and sunny. As it matures, it produces a very large mass of many plants from long roots under the soil, growing into something of a giant carnivorous bush. One of the most spectacular and beloved carnivorous plants around, this variety is a tried and true classic. Its forgiving nature makes it extremely rewarding to grow.

Reviewer: Christine from Montpelier, VT United States  
The level of care demonstrated in the packing of this plant was pretty extraordinary. This plant lost it's dewy drops in transit, but is perking back up. We'll definitely order again.
