Drosera platystigma, sometimes called the Black-eyed Sundew, is native to Western Australia near Albany and Perth where it grows in sand and laterite soil. The pygmy sundew produces large orange flowers almost as big as the plant itself. During the dry summers, D. platystigma goes dormant. However, once fall arrives with increased moisture, active growth resumes and the plant begins to produce gemmae .
Size and packing method: Plants come potted in 2 inch pots. Each pot contains 1-2 plants. Pygmy sundews are small, this species reaches a maximum of 0.75 inches across in ideal conditions.
