Plant Description
  • Species: Drosera
  • Drosera Admirabilis is a striking, small rosetted South African sundew. This subtropical sundew is a vigorous grower and can do well for beginner growers if it is provided with proper conditions. There are several location forms that look slightly different, but they are all just as easy to grow
  • Drosera Admirabilis can get rather wide in diameter at maturity, sometimes up to 4cm across. In growing habit they tend to form a skirt of old growth after growing for several years, and can eventually grow 10cm tall! 
  • Bite-size info:
    • 🏡 Outdoors or indoors with artificial lighting
    • 📅 Subtropical perennial. Grows year round
    • 🌱 Mature size: 3-4cm across
    • 🏆 Recommended for: All levels carnivorous plant enthusiasts


  • Whether you prefer starting off with a younger plant and watch it grow into full majestic glory over the years or jumping in with more munch, right from the get go, we've got you covered! Cultivo is all about choices and our plants are available in various sizes and options to suit your every need
  • The size on offer refers to the maximum size your plant will reach during the upcoming growing season
Bareroot or potted?
  • We recommend sundews as potted plants for beginner carnivorous plant enthusiasts - simply unwrap, water and enjoy!  Potted plants are sent with a protective covering and will be good in this soil for another 6-9 months.  Planter sizes are selected in relation to plant size and range from 5cm to 10cm pots unless otherwise mentioned
  • Bare root plants are for those who wish to pot up and acclimatise their own plants.  Sundews generally have very fragile roots and may take a while to settle in.  Bareroot plants are rinsed and sent in a protective covering with roots wrapped in damp paper towels
  • Still in need of special potting soil? Pick up some of our deluxe premixed growing media for sundews here
