Drosera regia, King Sundew, live carnivorous plant, potted


Drosera regia is one of the largest sundews in cultivation. Referred to as the king of the sundews due to its ample size. The leaves are long and pointed and can reach over 24" in length with sticky hairs lining the front of each leaf. Whenever an insect lands, it cannot escape the dew. The leaf will eventually coil around the insect to digest it. Regia is different than many carnivorous plants as it does best when fed, either allowed to catch lots of insects or it can be foliar fed. Grow in full sun outdoors to see the quickest growth rate.

Available in a 3.5" pot.

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. *Filiformis and intermedia will die back during the winter to form a “winter bud”. In the spring it will ‘wake up’ and begin producing leaves again.
