Drosera madagascariensis

(20 reviews) Write a Review
Drosera madagascarensis has a wide distribution, from Madagascar and South Africa to Congo, Guinea and Nigeria. It grows from a single stem that often rambles along the soil surface. The growing section is approximately 2-3 inches long with orange-yellow leaves. As the sundew grows, the older section will turn brown. The plant produces flowers that seem to self-pollinate and readily set seeds. Grow this plant in a sunny and warm location.

    Plants arrived quickly! Due to an issue with the post office they were left in their box a couple days after delivery, but still were very healthy. This little one is growing very quickly - a new leaf every 1-3 days! It has been wildly snacking on gnats to my delight :)

    The plant (or should I say plants) arrived in perfect condition. I placed them in their new home as soon as they arrived and they didn't even flinch. They have tons of little dewy leaves on and many more growing. Definitely would buy again!
