Easy and vigorous this sundew plant is highly reccomended for the beginner and children alike , much easier and faster growing than the venus flytrap infact I would say it has to be one of the easiest of all the carnivorous plants to grow !, small pink flowers are produced in the spring which set viable seed by themselves. These are mature plants sent out ready potted in 9cm pots. Stand the plant in a tray of rain water in a bright sunny position during the spring and summer months keep the plant just damp and cool -5c - +4c over Winter, an unheated greenhouse would be ideal
our plants freeze solid at this time of year and have been down as low as -11c !, plants come back into growth in the Spring. These are great plants for controlling whitefly and really work well in a greenhouse or conservatory !
Keep the plants standing in a tray of rainwater or distilled water around 1-2cm deep in a bright sunny position, south facing windowsill, conservatory frost free or unheated greenhouse. I find it is best not to feed plants yourself, if you are worried the plants are not catching enough insects just put them outside for a few days you will be surprised what they can catch by themselves over the summer months.
