Drosera affinis

(3 reviews)

This species is native to South Africa (and Namibia). Unlike other South African sundews that like mild temperatures, this one is much more heat-tolerant. If you're familiar with Drosera intermedia (native to the Americas), you might notice that D. affinis has a similar appearance. It has a long, thin petiole (leaf stem) with a paddle-shaped leaf. In bright sunlight, the plant is red. This plant self-pollinates and sets seeds very readily.

Type of Plant: Tropical plant for windowsill growing.
Size: 3 inches tall when mature.
Sunlight: Partial sun.
Water: Low-mineral water (50 ppm or less).
Soil: Equal parts peat moss and perlite only.
Temperatures: Tolerant of cool temperatures but always protect from frost.

• Juvenile plant, acclimated for windowsill growing.
• Shipped in a 3-inch pot. Care instructions are included.
