New Plant: Drosera adelae

I got another carnivorous plant the other day, a small Drosera adelae in a 2.5″ square pot. It’s already proven to be a skilled catcher of small fruit flies, far surpassing my Nepenthes.

It can apparently grow moderately large in good conditions. It prefers low light and cool temperatures. I’ll likely keep it on the bottom shelf of my mom’s light stand and hopefully that’ll be cool enough for it.
