Drosera esterhuyseniae x slackii


Drosera esterhuyseniae x slackii is a sub-tropical rosette sundew hybrid. The parent plants are native to the coastal mountains of the cape of South Africa. It is an easy carnivorous plant to care for and will do well on a window sill with bright but indirect light. The tentacles (trichomes) turn a lovely orange under proper lighting which contrasts well with the bright yellow-green leaves.


Size and packing method: You will receive a bare root plant about 1 inch in diameter, carefully wrapped in a damp paper towel. If selecting with soil mix, you will receive two cups of our prepackaged Carnivorous Plant Soil Mix in addition to the bare root plant. This quantity of soil is roughly enough to fill one 2.5 x 2.5 x 3.5 inch square pot.
