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.

5 of 5 Buh-bye gnats June 10, 2020
Reviewer: David Hill from Winter Haven, FL United States  
Dear reader, if you have gnats, this plant is your answer!   My plant arrived in great condition 3 mos. ago.  I bought it to deal with fungus gnats and that tiny little plant has been more effective than I had ever dared hope.  Cool healthy plant, arrived quickly (and well packed) with good instructions.  I will definitely order from this site again.  Thanks.

5 of 5 Already blooming April 29, 2019
Reviewer: Matthew Fujita from Arlington, TX United States  
The adelae was perfect and healthy. Sarracenia Northwest send big plants - much bigger than many of the other vendors. A month later and my adelae is sending up a flower stalk, which I'll let it bloom to see the flowers.
