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.
