General Description
 
This is probably the most eye-catching of the temperate sundews. Adult plants get up to 3 inches tall and 3 inches in diameter. Its uniform shape gives it the appearance of a miniature tree. The only difference, of course, is that this tree sparkles in sunlight! It also curls itself around captured insects.

In the wild, this sundew is found in parts of boggy areas that are often flooded with an inch or two of water, hence its common name. With this particular sundew, keep the water level fairly high, about 3/4 of the way up the pot.

In winter, the leaves will die back, and the plant will form a resting bud sitting at soil level. Growth will resume in mid-spring.

So cute! May 21, 2019
Reviewer: Beth Gray from Ada, OH United States  
The sundew was very healthy and glitters in the morning sun.  The other day I noticed a minuscule sundew on the edge of the pot, so I'm hoping it will grow as well.

Little Drosera intermedia May 12, 2019
Reviewer: Jack Haggerty from Carrboro, NC United States  
Came well packed - like other reputable sellers - and was healthy, then slumped, and now seems to be picking up again. It's not tall, nor was it advertised to be. I'd give 4.5 stars, but give them the benefit of the split.

Was able to transplant them easily.  Planted in full sun and they are now bright red.  Love these little guys.
