Drosera natalensis (Droseraceae) It is a charming rosetted South African sundew. It can develop beautiful red-orange coloration under bright light. This subtropical sundew is generally very easy to grow, and is a great choice for beginner sundew growers. Drosera natalensis is very often confused with Drosera dielsiana. Sowing : Use a medium of peat and sand. 1. Pack down the desired media as much as possible (this will keep the peat mix extra moist and you can keep the water level a bit lower this way). Make sure that it was thoroughly rinsed first, if you want to avoid mold and algae. 2. Sprinkle the seeds on the surface. DO NOT BURY THEM, OR NOTHING WILL GROW! You can use very small containers and then transplant them with tweezers once the seedling once they get large enough. 3. Next, create a warm, humid environment that you will place in your windowsill or under growlights. Since it gets pretty cold in my room during the winter, I placed a small heat mat underneath the sterilite container. I turn it on in the day and off at night. It creates a perfect balmy environment in the day for germinating South American sundew seeds, and any other seeds for that matter. Date of harvest ; June 2012. Locality : Ex Hort.
