The Alice Sundew, Drosera aliciae, is an African low-growing, rosette-forming sundew with green, wedge-shaped leaves, lined with crimson tentacles. It is very pretty, and easy to grow. It is a subtropical sundew with leaves year round. It tolerates a wide range of growing conditions, but prefers open, sunny, boggy conditions in peaty soils. It often produces clumps of plants from it roots, and can fill a pot, or easily create a small colony. It dies back in a light frost, but returns from the roots. The flowers are large and pink with several open at a time. It is self-fertile, and generously produces seeds that can be sown immediately or stored in cool, dry conditions for a year or more. It easily makes leaf and root cuttings. D. aliciae can become a wonderful "weed" in your carnivorous plant collection. It is an excellent terrarium plant, and a great beginner's plant. This selection comes from seed, and will show some natural variations.

very nice plant!

I'm new to carnivorous plants but this plant, as well as the terrarium collection arrived very nicely packaged and not damaged at all. My plant is producing lots of dew and new leaves. Will definitely order from this company again!

Great plant

This is a hardy little plant. She was the sundew that was least affected by the trauma of shipping to my desert home. She's super pretty and was quick to get dewy and start eating summer bugs. (The straw is there for easier bottom-pot-watering, in case anyone was wondering. I'm definitely weird, but there is always a purpose to my weird haha).

I named her Alice Eats Wonderland, for obvious reasons lollllll

Drosera Aliciae

Got mine in the mail today. I live in swfl so it was a long trip for the plant. Seems to be very healthy just needs to be potted and kept up with for the dew to appear. Would recommend!
