Product Description

Drosera spathulata. (Spoonleaf Sundew) Origin: Australia. 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 pink flowers. Sundews are winter hardy in most of the southeastern US, in cooler regions they can be grown in pots and terrariums as a house plant. Drosera graminifolia isn't very picky about soil. It grows well in the standard 1:1 peat:sand "CP mix". It will tend to be redder under brighter light. Once the plants are large enough you can try feeding them small insects or get some dried blood worms at a pet shop. The dried blood worms can be dipped in water and placed on the sticky leaves. Drosera spathulata can live for years. The plants tend to go though cycles of growth and semi-dormancy. When they bloom, save the seeds to grow more.
