Drosera admirabilis is a sub-tropical rosette sundew native to South Africa. It is relatively easy to care for making it a good carnivorous plant for beginners. The tentacles (trichomes) of D. admirabilis can turn deep red if given strong light but may become more green in dimmer conditions. Over time, the plant can form a skirt of dead leaves several inches tall.
