Drosera ramellosa

A species usually branching into mostly 2 erect stems reaching 4-12 cm in length with a compact basal rosette of leaves and alternate leaves along the erect stems. The inflorescence arises from the basal rosette and the flowers are often self-pollinating. Most forms are green plants, but some bronze plants are also reported.
The tuber is orange.

Drosera ramellosa often is self-pollinating but the seeds are notoriously difficult to germinate in my experience. Only very recently I tried to treat them with sodium hypochlorite which led to acceptable germination.
