Big Pink is a selected breeding of the white leaf and red leaf forms of Drosera capensis. In bright sunlight, the plant produces long pink leaves that are larger than its parent plants. As a cool-tropical species, this plant likes it sunny but cool. It may slow down significantly during the hottest parts of summer, but watch it take off again when the summer heat passes. Great for the first-time grower.

    Awesome plants; even better customer service..

    I ordered a couple of these and I live in Denver. USPS left them in their van overnight when it got really cold and it killed them. They were replaced immediately and the replacements that arrived looked amazing and they are growing so fast. I will definitely be doing repeat business with these guys. Thanks again!!

    The plant arrived in perfect condition. Your expertise in packaging is apparent. Then my cat decided to eat all but two of the branches. It is growing three new branches.
