Drosera Filaformis “Florida Giant”


Out of stock


No one knows the exact origins of Florida Giant is unknown. Some say it’s a natural hybrid or a variety of Drosera filiformis. But we suspect to be a hybrid of D. filiformis and D. tracyi that was bred by a grower in California. At least that’s the working hypothesis for now. Why do we suspect that? The flowers are sterile. We’ve never gotten seeds from it, and the plant seemed to have been first been for sale in California.

A fully grown Florida Giant is a truly impressive plant. It produces slender dewy green leaves that towers over the typical form of dewthread. By the end of the season, many leaves are dotted with carcasses. In winter, the leaves will die back, and the plant will form a resting bud sitting at soil level. Growth will resume in mid-spring.
