Drosera multifida "Evans Head"

(16 reviews)

One word describes this plant - spectacular! Drosera multifida extrema is a type of fork-leaf sundew, and like its relatives has long slender red leaves that branch out multiple times. But on this special plant, it's not unusual to see as many as 36+ points on each leaf!

This particular clone has genetic origins in Evan's Head, a coastal colony of D. multifida extrema in New South Wales, Australia. The Evans Head form is different from the common form circulated in US collections in several ways. Firstly, in optimal conditions, the plant flowers continuously for us, sometimes self-pollinating and producing seeds. The flowers are primarily white, but in cool conditions can express the slightest pink hue, a trait generally unknown in this variety.

Forks of the leaves, instead of extending laterally as in typical forms, are pointed outwards, away from the plant, forming a sort of cup-shaped web. It grows somewhat slower than the common form, remaining more compact and upright for longer before achieving the long, pendulous leaves that the variety is famous for. In the end, the common form and the Evan's Head form both reach the same size, and both are just as vigorous.

    Plant was shipped quickly and was well packed and very healthy upon arrival. Within a day or two of being in light it had started developing dew. I am very pleased.

    Well Packed, Quite Thirsty

    Posted by Stephanie on August 2, 2020

    The plant arrived about a month ago well packaged and looking alright to my neophyte eyes, but seems to just blow through water like nobody's business! I have to replenish its water twice as often as the Drosera graomogolensis I got in the same order. It's also taking some time to adjust, and only bothers to produce dew on the very newest two branches (but has started catching a few gnats recently). Maybe not enough sunlight where it is, but it's the sunniest spot in the house. The new stem is green rather than red, hence why I think it's a sun issue, but I have no idea how a plant with so little surface area is drinking so much water! I'm not terribly experienced, so maybe this is normal, it was just surprising.

    Been looking for more carnivorous plants to add to my home - and so nice to be clearly walked through which plants will work for me or not. Excellent selections AND added a new type of drosera to my collection. Thank you!
