Drosera multifida extrema

(40 reviews) Write a Review
One word describes this plant - spectacular! It has long slender red leaves that branch out multiple times, as many as 36+ points on each leaf! A fully adult plant will have leaves that are 12-16 inches long, which is why some growers keep their plants in hanging baskets. Give this plant lots of sunlight, and we mean lots! You cannot give this sundew too much sun. It loves warm sunny windowsills.

    New sundew

    I ordered this one to add to my sundew collection. It has already started growing new branches after a few weeks. Excited to see how big this one grows.

    Good gnat eater

    This has grown into a great gnat catcher. It’s multiple branches put up a thicket of sticky traps that are great at catching bugs. Arrived healthy and well packaged, and is growing vigorously.

    D. Multifida Extrema

    Plant arrived in great shape, in a small clump of 2-3 plants. The plants have since adapted well to my space and are sending out beautiful new shoots.

    Beautiful plant - but harder to keep happy

    Posted by Michael Duncan on August 7, 2020

    This drosera multifida extrema was very beautiful when received - and was relatively healthy - but she did not grow as easily as my Big Pink sundew. She did grow somewhat, and while I followed care instructions, eventually she didn't make it (user error I'm sure, but can't pinpoint the root cause). *** RESPONSE BY SARRACENIA NORTHWEST *** I'm sorry to hear about the sundew! Yes, Big Pink is relatively easy because it doesn't require as intense lighting as D. multifida, which requires almost full sun conditions. A south window with lots of unobstructed sunlight is best for this plant. As always, we're here to help you out as much as we can.

    Drosera multifida extrema

    Superior robust specimen, properly potted, therefore NO transplant shock upon arrival. New leaves are triple the height of original with many bifurcations. Magnificent!
