General Description
 
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.

Well packaged and although I received these plants in the cold winter months they were very healthy and have grown nicely since they've been in their new home.

5 of 5 Sundews & Pitcher Plants February 9, 2020
Reviewer: Susan Campbell from Berkeley Springs , WV United States  
These are my first carnivorous plant, not counting venus fly traps I got as a kid. I'm very pleased with the speed they arrived and all in great condition. Plenty of growing instructions were included.  All of them are still alive and thriving (pitcher plants are planted outside and are dormant now, but healthy).

5 of 5 Beautiful plant January 25, 2020
Reviewer: Eileen Pryor from Kalispell, Mt  
Received my order yesterday, I was so impressed with the quality packaging. Including a heat pack that kept them warm even in mid winter.
The plant was not as bright as the pictures, but I've noticed just today the colors have brightened way up and the little green shoots seem to be popping out everywhere.
I definately will order again soon.
So nice to have a hand written thank you on my order form.
