Much has been written about this interesting species of sundew over the years, both in the popular literature and indeed on-line in more recent times. Much of what is written would serve to discourage the average hobbyist from attempting cultivation, and as a result until surprisingly recently Drosera regia was scarcely seen. The truth however, is that this plant is generally easy to grow successfully, and once established is a long lived perennial which can attain huge dimensions.

Keywords: Cultivation, Drosera regia
