Drosera filiformis floridana

(29 reviews)

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.

Sunlight: Full sun during the growing season.
Water: Low-mineral water (50 ppm or less).
Soil: Equal parts peat moss and perlite only.

• Acclimated for outdoor growing.

    I was so excited to find a carnivorous plant nursery near me. The plants I ordered have had zero trouble adjusting to my back deck. Plants I’ve ordered from elsewhere are still acclimating.

    This guy is my favorite of my three sundews. It came well-packaged, super healthy, and is now flourishing. Thank for the great plant!

    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.

    Great condition!

    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.
