I really love Drosera allantostigma

I've mentioned it before, but I really love Drosera allantostigma. It was my first pygmy, and is still far and away my favorite. It's frequently a contender for "favorite plant in my collection."

Just look at this beauty.

Drosera allantostigma!
There are like 20 active leaves on this plant. What an amazing rosette!
It's got everything – a beautiful rosette, lovely colors, delicate tentacles, and nice dew. It's also got a sort of mounded shape when mature that's difficult to capture in a photograph, but really stunning in person.

Another angle on the Drosera allantostigma!
It's almost bigger than that Drosera tokaiensis in the middle. My favorite plant.
I've been growing this particular plant since January, when I received it as a hitchhiker in another pot. I also received some D. allantostigma during the NASC auction which are now in bloom!

Lots of Drosera allantostigma all together looking cute!
I'm gonna get some gemmae out of these guys come September. Just you watch.
They're a bit smaller than the Drosera helodes flowers, but still super cute. And look how great the plants look too!

Drosera allantostigma flowers!
I need a proper camera for good photos of flowers, but these are so cute and cheery.
I really love this plant. If you grow only one pygmy, this is the one I recommend. It's wonderful.
