Drosera filiformis "Nova Scotia"

(2 reviews) Write a Review
As the name suggests, this form of Drosera filiormis is native to Nova Scotia where winters are downright frigid, so it is accustomed to a short growing season and chilly winters. It comes out of dormancy later than other forms of filiformis and is generally shorter, about 6 inches. In late August, it will cease growing and its leaves will die back. The plant will eventually form a resting bud sitting at soil level. Growth will resume in spring.

    I received a nice little D. filiformis "Nova Scotia" that was, as usual, well packed and arrived safely. The plant has been growing nicely, and I have repotted it into a bit larger pot. It has been blooming freely and produces large (for a Drosera) purplish flowers that are open only during the morning.
