Drosera sargentii is a pygmy sundew native to Western Australia in the Esperance and Cape Arid regions. It is easy to identify by the tuft of white hairs that cover the bud. These hairs, also known as stipules, attach to the base of each leaf and offer protection during the hot, dry summers while the plant is dormant. Once fall arrives with more moderate temperatures and increased moisture, D. sargentii resumes active growth and begins to produce gemmae.
Size and packing method: Because pygmy sundews have fragile roots, plants are shipped in small plugs of soil with biodegradable wrappers. Upon arrival, pot the soil plug including the wrapper to avoid root disturbance. Each plug contains multiple plants.
