Drosera Rotundifolia Sundew

Drosera Rotundifolia is a variety of Drosera, one of the wider spread species it can be found in its natural habitat in Northern Europe, much of Siberia, large parts of North America, Korea and Japan, but can also be found as far South such as Carolina, Mississippi, Alabama in the USA and in New Guinea.  These young plants are available and have been grown from seed germination last year, here in my Greenhouse in the UK.

As previously stated the plant will be sent  bare rooted and should be planted on arrival in a good quality potting media either long fibre sphagnum moss or a mix of pure peat moss, & perlite. On no account should it be planted in any of the commercial potting mixes available as these may contain additional nutrients which are not suitable for Carnivorous plants.

Do not use any fertiliser on your Drosera Capensis as they will catch there own food, flies etc.

I would strongly recommend you repot annually and remember in a winter period they can be kept in an unheated greenhouse and cut back to encourage a nice bushy growth next season, other information is available in my growing guides on this site.

These plants require full exposure to sunlight for the best growth, colour & general health of the plant and if grown indoors then a south facing window in full sun is ideal.

It is advisable to only use rainwater/RO water. Keep your plants standing in a small amount of water during the growing season.
