General Description
The spoon leaf sundew, Drosera spatulata, is definitely demure in nature. When full grown, it is just under 2 inches in diameter, but it can reproduce itself by sending out shoots, producing a mound of multiple plants with spoon-shaped leaves.

Like a pet rock, the spoon leaf sundew can keep you company when you're at work, making dinner, or enjoying a stroll through the park. With the right care, your plant will produce lovely pink flowers for you. This is a great plant for the first time grower.
Plants You Receive
Your plant will be shipped potted in a 3-inch pot.

Please watch the monthly video podcast for examples of how your plant may look at this time of the year and important growing tips for the season.

minature Sundew March 20, 2017
Reviewer: Mike Wilensky from USA, CA United States  
I have ordered from Sarracenia NW before. Ordering was fast and easy. Both times, my plants arrived healthy and happy AND they arrived within three or four days after they shipped them to me. I will certainly order in the future from you good folks!

My Spatulata March 6, 2017
Reviewer: Randall Ayers from Ashland, VA United States  
This plant was packaged very nicely and is doing very well. I have other Drosera Capensis' and this is thriving giving the same care. This plant is currently in the early stages of flowering. I got it on sale and is worth every penny, I would purchase again if not on sale. Care sheets are very informative for anyone not use to growing carnivorous plants.

Reviewer: David Meadows from Marlton, NJ  
I ordered my plant on sale less than two months ago. It arrived in perfect condition and already has nearly outgrown its 3-inch pot.

10/10 would buy again February 12, 2017
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from El Paso, TX United States  
Arrived in perfect condition and still looks stunning. I would trust these people to ship me an actual human baby and expect it to be perfectly healthy and unharmed by the time it arrived at my door.
