Product info

Drosera roraimae is a South American sundew which is endemic to Brazil and Venezuela. The small sundew forms a rosette of short rounded trapping leaves that grow on an extended petiole. Drosera roraimae is characteristically hairy in the centre of the rosette and changes to a beautiful orange-red colour when exposed to the right light conditions. Over the course of a few years a tower of old dead trapping leaves can form below the current rosette.
