Drosera aliciae

{Table Moutain, South Africa}


This form of Drosera aliciae originates from the Table Mountain in the Table Mountain National Park.

The plants form a flat rosette of leaves. The leaves tend to be a bit broader than the normal D. aliciae. The plant itself resembles more of a look similar to D. cuneifolia. The colours are also slightly different. The green part of the leaf is brighter green and the tentacles are a brighter red colour. The dead leaves form a 'skirt' on the ground that support the new growth. This way D. aliciae can grow tens of centimetres in the air.

The flower stalk starts in the centre of the plant and later migrates to the side.
