LG Drosera scorpioides, Pygmy Sundew, live carnivorous plant, potted, WYSIWYG


This may be a pygmy sundew but it is the largest! It can grow several inches tall in good, strong light. It has an upright habit where the tentacles reach to the sky. The pads are somewhat orange with relatively long dew covered hairs. One of the most interesting characteristics of pygmy sundews is the fact they produce both flowers and gemmae. Gemmae are basically modified leaves with the capability to grow into full sized plants. 

You will receive the exact plant in the photos (taken 3/11). There are multiple plants. They are in a 3.5" nursery pot and will be shipped potted. 

Drosera Care: Sundews do best in partial shade to full sun. They are well suited for growing on window ledges or outdoors during warm months. They must be watered with non-chlorinated water preferably with a low TDS (between 0 and 25ppm). You can use rain water, RO or distilled. Allow to dry slightly but not completely in between waterings. When watering, place plants in a tray and pour water in tray about 1/2” (referred to as the tray method). Avoid watering the crown of the plant. Temperature should be maintained between 60°F and 85°F. They are not too particular about humidity requirements. If your Drosera has little to no dew, increase light. They generally do well in open terrariums. 

*Never use fertilizers or soils with salts, minerals, or added fertilizers
