    Drosera afra in South Africa

    Hi,

    here are four pictures of plants, that we found in the Cedar Mountains. We first thought, they are Drosera trinervia. Only back in germany they were identified as Drosera afra by Andreas Fleischmann. Drosera afra differs from Drosera trinervia by not having too well developed nerves on the leafes undersurface. The plants and flowers of D. afra are larger than in D. trinervia. Saddly, we did not find a single plant in flower!









    regards,
    Christian
