Drosera burmannii, Burmese Sundew, live carnivorous plant, potted


This is one of my personal favorite sundews! It is a beautifully rossetted shape with spoon shaped leaves. It is one of the most reactive sundews with snap tentacles that grasp on to its prey. The leaves are green with red hairs that hold the dew. Burmanii has very thick, sticky dew compared to D spatulata. The flower stalks are tall and thin with many white flowers. They are sequential bloomers but the flowers are short lived. The plants are quite small at approximately 2-3 cm at mature size. They require no dormancy and prefer subtropical conditions. They are excellent at catching small insects like ants, mosquitoes, and gnats. They grow well indoors in a sunny windowsill. They are blooming size and in a 2.5" pot.

Drosera and Pinguicula: Sundews and Butterworts do best in part shade / filtered sunlight. They are well suited for growing on window ledges. They must be watered with non-chlorinated water preferably with a low TDS (between 0 and 25ppm). You can use rain water 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 80°F. It is important to keep humidity around 50% in order to ensure proper dew production. If your Drosera has little to no dew or your Pinguicula is not sticky, gradually increase light. They generally do well in terrariums. *Never use fertilizers or soils with salts, minerals, or added fertilizers
