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.
