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.

Reviewer: Melvin Schuck from TOWNSEND, GA United States  
The Drosera adelae arrived in great condition.  I was a little worried about shipping it across the country in summer.  It is growing well.

Reviewer: Josh from Indiana  
It took 2-3 days to ship and when it arrived it was securely packaged and looked very healthy. It also came with several adelaes in the pot. Very satisfied with this purchase.
Thanks!

5 of 5 Great Adelae August 2, 2020
Reviewer: Spencer B from Orlando, FL United States  
You can't go wrong with an adelae, mine came with a bit of live sphagnum that I am cultivating. The plant has grown many offshoots over the past month and works great in my indoor setup.
