Product info

Drosera sessilifolia is a South American sundew that is endemic to regions like Brazil, Guyana and Venezuela. The sundew is very similar to Drosera burmannii and is genetically related to the kind that is found only in Asia and Australia. This taxonomic connection gives Drosera sessilifolia the same triangular, rounded leaves that grow in a small compact rosette shape. Here one can spot the so-called snap-tentacles, with which Drosera sessilifolia can catapult a prey into its trapping leaf. The leaves can obtain a more red colour depending the stage of maturity it has reached
