Drosera prostrata

A species branching into 4-5 prostrate (= attached to the soil) stems reaching up to 15 cm in length. This prostrate growth is unique for this species. Sometimes such stems can be further branched along their length. A basal rosette is rarely formed. Plants are reddish and the leaves are formed in whorls. The inflorescence arises from the center of the plant.
The tuber is orange.

I only have very limited experience with this species yet.
