Product info

Drosera slackii is a very well known sundew endemic to South Africa. It was named after Adrian Slack, a pioneer when it comes to the cultivation of carnivorous plants. It is characterized by brightly colored red hairs on the rosette of trapping leaves. Flattened leafstalks that end in wide, rounded trapping surfaces grow from the centre of the rosette. The leaves of Drosera slackii can be large and brightly colored when circumstances are favorable.
When temperatures rise to high the sundew fails to thrive and the sundew will pale to a yellowish white.
