For many growers, it’s the Venus flytrap which first gets them into the carnivorous plant hobby. But the humble sundews are easier to grow, and - I would argue - just as spectacular! They are one of the largest genera of carnivorous plants, with nearly 200 species to collect. The Sundew Variety Collection is a fantastic way to start.
You’ll receive three plants: Drosera aliciae, Drosera scorpioides, and Drosera nidiformis. All share similar care requirements and together they make a very attractive display on a sunny windowsill. These plants enjoy full sun, and can be grown indoors year-round with no need for a winter dormancy. Keep them well watered using the tray method.
All plants are sent potted in appropriate soil. See delivery information.
