There are many different forms of cistiflora, but this is the rarest and most sought after. The huge purple flowers are breath taking. This form is known only from one small population on a farm in South Africa. Plants grow 6-8" tall. Mature plants have giant 3" pink-purple flowers with black centers atop delicate looking plants. A must have for the sundew collector.
Please note; this plant is dormant from May - September and if ordered during this time will arrive with little to no visible growth.
Sun: As much sun as possible, if sun is inadequate during their winter growing season supplement with T5 fluorescent lighting
Water: Sitting in water in September, as summer approaches wait for the plant to quickly go brown. Then reduce watering so that it slowly goes dry over the course of a month. Distilled or purified water only. Keep in a cool, dry place during summer dormancy and sprinkle them with water once every couple of weeks
Temperature: Extreme heat (over 90 degrees) during their growing season may send them into dormancy, many species experience light frost in the wild for short periods of time but must be protected from freezing
Dormancy: Dormancy is variable but often starts in May and ends in September
