Guest paul y Posted July 24, 2015 Report Share Posted July 24, 2015 (edited) a new species of drosera has been discovered on a single mountaintop in eastern minas gerais, drosera magnifica, regarded as the largest new world sundew and one of the three largest sundews. it was recently discovered and identified through the popular social media network "facebook" detailed descriptions remarks on ecology habitat and distribution, conservation line drawings and comparison of related taxa d graminifolia and d spiralis can all be found on facebook. its big and beautiful and iucn red listed so it will at some point enter cultivation. congrats Fernando and nice one facebook. edit, info update grows up to 1.5 metres tall from base of the stem to tip of inflorescence, looks very similar to an oversized impossibly big d graminifolia. having seen in person on several occasions what is easily the biggest and healthiest d regia in cultivation anywhere I cannot wait to see what this plant is capable of. or as its being remarked on fb, "so I can finally grow something that will deal with the neighbours cat".
