Drosera regia, also known as the King Sundew, is an incredible species. It grows long sword-shaped leaves that can wrap multiple times around prey, surrounding it with dew secreting tentacles that are equally impressive in size. Originating from a single valley in South Africa, it is one of the most vulnerable Drosera species in the wild with only a few hundred individuals left in one small colony.

Size and packing method: You will receive a plant 2 1/2  to 3 inches in diameter. Bare root plants will be carefully wrapped in a damp paper towel. Potted specimens will be packed securely to prevent the plant from becoming dislodged during shipping.
