The spoon leaf sundew, Drosera spatulata, is a demure plant. When fully 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. It's an excellent plant for the first time grower.
