Drosera filiformis var. floridana, "White Flower"

(26 reviews) Write a Review
This variety of Drosera filiformis is similar to the typical form but has dark red leaves. In time, the plant will produce a crown up to an inch across and leaves up to 8 inches tall. Give this plant LOTS of sunlight to maintain its beautiful red leaves. Never underestimate how much this plant loves sunlight! The particular form we carry produces white flowers in early summer.

    I have followed the directions and kept in a try of rainwater and distilled water. Growing rapidly in full sun. If you live in a dry climate you can grow this easily. Best part of my day is to see what it caught.

    This Floridana came with 2 hibernacula intact, and one is doing absolutely fantastic. It's the same color red as their photos. The other hibernacula may pull through (probs not), but I'm very satisfied with this drosera.
