Drosera capensis ‘Wide Leaf’


Out of stock

Drosera capensis ‘Wide Leaf’ is appropriately named for the wider leaves it produces in comparison to the typical form of the plant. It is a hardy grower and will develop a “trunk” over time as old leaves die away and new ones are produced from the growth point. The leaves are covered with tentacles that secrete a clear sticky substance to attract and catch prey.
