Drosera Kenneallyi is a carnivorous plant native to Western Australia. The species was collected for the first time in 1982 by Kevin F. Kenneally and was then named after him. Drosera Kenneallyi is a reddish , fibrous-rooted perennial that grows in sandy loam, skeletal soils and on the margins of swamps. The tiny paddle-like hairy leaves are covered with drops of sticky goo, which trap insects that are attracted to the plant. In summer the sundews are topped with thin spikes holding small white flowers. The rosette-forming sundew has red carnivorous leaves at the end of the petioles. Inflorescences are 12.5–20.5 cm (5–8 in) long with white flowers that appear from November to December. With its tropical origin, Drosera Kenneallyi is to keep warm all year round. The plant needs plenty of light, full sun is recommended. The plant is very suitable for a terrarium or a warm greenhouse. In its natural habitat, the plant covers dormancy during the dry period. Dormancy is not required in culture; however, you can allow dormancy by providing cool and dark. You will see the plant petioles becoming shorter and shorter (do not let the pot dry out completely!). The plant can then slowly get back more water after dormancy. Hardiness zone: 11
