Drosera natalensis is a common species in cultivation. It is found in Eastern Cape, KwaZulu-Natal, Limpopo and Mpumalanga.
Etymology: Drosera from Greek droseros ‘dewy’1. Natalensis means 'from Natal', refering to KwaZulu-Natal, the coastal South African province2.
The plant forms a rosette of leaves that look a lot like other species, like D. spatulata or D. tokaiensis. The base of the leaf is a bit broader than the other species. The plant grows to about 4 cm (1.8 inches) in diameter. When mature it produces flowers constantly.
The flowers of D. natalensis are a soft pink colour. The 5 petals of the flower don't fully connect near the base, causing a bit of the green sepal to be visible.
D. natalensis produces a lot of seeds per pod. The seeds have a pointy oval shape and have long ridges lengthways. One end of the seed is very pointy, while the other and is more flattened. They are about 0.5 mm in length.
