Often referred to as a Spoon Sundew for the shape of its leaves. It grows as a rosetted sundew with green leaves and red “hairs” that hold the sticky liquid. If given bright, indirect light they will develop a lovely red coloration. This small sundew grows as a tightly compacted, mounding plant. They bloom, producing multiple flower stalks high above the foliage consisting of several lovely pink flowers. This carnivorous plant is wonderful at capturing gnats, fruit flies and mosquitoes! Great for beginners, this plant is an easy, small windowsill grower.

We recommend planting this plug in our Drosera soil.

***IMPORTANT NOTE:
This plant ships as a 2″ fully rooted starter plant.
