General Description
 
Drosera adelae, commonly known as the lance leaf sundew, is native to northern Australia. It is an excellent plant for beginners because of its ability to adapt to different light conditions. Grow in medium light for wide green leaves. Grow in very bright light for narrower, red leaves.

This sundew is also extremely prolific. It sends out runners that form new plants from under the soil. A single plant in a 3-inch pot can easily fill up that space within 6 months! The lance leaf sundew makes great a companion plants for orchids, such as Phalenopsis. Look for red star-shape flowers in early winter.

Drosera adelae September 22, 2013
Reviewer: Eric R. from Lawton, OK United States  
I read some on-line information about how this particularl plant can be be finicky in it's growth requirements. I purchased two, and they have not ceased to consistently grow. I  have since found out that these little babies propagate easily so I have looking forward to spreading them around the display, intrspersed with other plants
