Drosera roseana, is one of the easy-to-grow pygmy sundews. It is of medium size for a pygmy with wonderful orangey-red to red leaves in a dense rosette. The leaves resemble little cherry lollipops with green stems. As it matures, the rosette grows upward, leaving a pretty column of sticky leaves below. It prefers a sunny, humid spot with sandy-peat soil in the growing season, and drier, but not totally dry soil in the winter, when it goes dormant. It flowers mid summer with numerous, small, white flowers. They have a sweet fragrance and stay open, day and night, for several days. They do not seed readily in cultivation. It does however, produce numerous gemmae in the winter, which can be harvested when they darken slightly. The gemmae can be sown immediately on the surface of the pot, or stored cool and damp for a short period. D. roseana is a pretty little pygmy. This selection comes from gemmae and are identical to the parents.

Excellent Quality

The Pygmy sundew I ordered came in a pot with 7 or more plants. Guess what? Almost all were loaded with gemmae. Excellent packaging and fast shipping.

Perfect plants with bonus Gemmae

The plant pot arrived in perfect condition. It was packaged in a way that prevented any damage to the plants. I also got a pleasant surprise of numerous Gemmae that are now growing out nicely.
