Drosera roseana

(4 reviews) Write a Review
This is a species of pygmy sundew native to Western Australia. With its diminutive stature and glistening red leaves, this plant has "cute" written all over it. In late fall, look for gemmae, small vegetative buds that you can sow to grow more plants of your own.

    I love the pygmies! This beautiful little plant is a joy to behold. Easy grower, very beautiful, tiny flowers. Very neat in appearance.

    This hardworking pygmy is only surpassed by D. scorpiodes in my set. The leaves have stayed a lovely bright red and fairly drip with dew. I must be doing something right, but he arrived that way. And has reproduced for me! Gemmae are growing up on my kitchen counter now, ready to begin pulling their weight in fruit fly carcasses. I love this little guy :)
