Drosera venusta is a medium-sized subtropical rosetted sundew native to South Africa. It was described as a new species by Paul Debbert in 1987. It is very closely related to Drosera coccicaulis and D. natalensis, and some taxonomists consider all three the same species. As with most sundews, each leaf is covered with scores of crimson 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! All our plants are shipped potted to reduce stress, and are ready to grow.
