Drosera multifida extrema

(36 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.

    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.

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

    I received a sundew that was really healthy and red in color. I posted photos of it on Facebook and received many compliments and I referred them to Sarracenia Northwest.
