General Description
 
Drosera venusta is native to the coastal mountains of South Africa. As a mountainous plant, it prefers cool temperatures, especially at night (45°-65°F). Avoid temperatures above 85°F whenever possible.

This species is native to a region that is equivalent to USDA zone 10, so it is tolerant of a brief light frost; however it will die back down to the soil. As long as the roots are protected, it'll grow back when the temperature warms up.
Plants You Receive
Your plant will be shipped potted in a 3-inch pot. Young plants are approximately 1-2 inches in diameter. 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.

Reviewer: Anonymous Person from El Paso, TX United States  
I still lay awake in bed at night trying to figure out how my plants arrived in such pristine condition and I suspect this thought will haunt me for years to come as I keep buying more of these beauties.
