Drosera admirabilis is commonly referred to as the Floating Sundew, and is native to the Cape Province of South Africa. It creates lovely 2-inch diameter rosettes of plants. Each leaf is covered with scores of hairlike tentacles which have a drop of glistening, sticky 'dew' on their tips. When small insects (fruit flies, gnats, and other small flying insects especially) come into contact with the dew, they become mired and are eventually digested by the plant. What a unique way to reduce these pesky little insects in your home, yard or greenhouse! An additional feature of this species is the presence of longer 'snap-tentacles' on the outer edges of the leaves, which will 'snap' over to grab prey items as well. NEAT! This is a good choice for a terrarium as well, since it requires no dormancy, and can be grown year-round. All our plants are shipped potted to reduce stress, and are ready to grow. We usually only have a few of these at a time, so get one now!
