Drosera multifida extrema

(46 reviews)

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.

Type of Plant: Tropical plant for windowsill growing.
Size: Up to 16 inches when mature.
Sunlight: Partial to full sun.
Water: Low-mineral water (50 ppm or less).
Soil: Equal parts peat moss and perlite only.
Temperatures: Tolerant of cool temperatures but always protect from frost.

• Juvenile plant, acclimated for windowsill growing.
• Shipped in a 3-inch pot. Care info is included.

    Such a cool looking plant, Packed very well no broken stems. Totally unfurled after unpacking. Healthy, I have never had to rehab a single plant that Sarracenia has shipped.

    Drosera multifida var extrema

    The plant came in great shape and was profoundly healthy. Had lots of large limbs and great color. It recovered quickly after unpacking. Fair warning to anyone it needs a lot of sunlight. The GE broad spectrum bulb from lowes does a great job giving it the light it needs indoors.

    What a great plant! As always the plant arrived in perfect condition. Love the care that you all use in protecting the plants during shipping. I potted it up on arrival with your soil mix and it is bouncing back slowly but surely. Thank you for providing excellent plants, education, and service for people interested in carnivorous plants. I keep sharing your business with others who are interested as well. What started as a means to reduce flies in my kitchen is now a love for growing carnivorous plants! Thank you

    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

    Posted by Clayton Kroh on January 9, 2021

    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.

    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.
