  • 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! 
  • Each tentacle has a small droplet of glistening mucilage. Insects become stuck to the tentacles and are then digested by the plant
  • These sticky bug-munching rosettes come highly recommended to new growers
  • 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.  These are medium to near-flowering size plants with very fragile roots and do not transplant well.  For this reason they will be sent already potted in our deluxe carnivorous plant soil. Simply unwrap, water and enjoy!

    • Similar to Drosera Aliciae, D. Admirabilis is finicky about water quality and prefers distilled- or reverse osmosis water to limit humic acid buildup on the crown of the plant
    • Drosera Admirabilis, being a subtropical sundew, does not need a dormancy period and will grow throughout the year - in fact it might die back slightly during the hot summer months, and be happier during the cooler months and may even flower during winter and spring
    • Flowering requires a lot of energy and might cause your plant to lose it's dew - Cut flower stalks when they emerge for a healthier, dewy plant
