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.

Sundew purchase January 1, 2019
Reviewer: Marie Stenberg from Entiat, WA United States  
The sundew arrived in great shape, I'm very happy. It's not really growing yet, but I'm assuming it will in the spring. Thank you!

Sundew December 31, 2018
Reviewer: George Bush from Lacey, WA United States  
I am delighted with how healthy the sundew is! Just in the short time I have had it it has sent out new leaves and is significantly bigger. It resides on a Sunny windowsill for the winter and I will plant it in my outdoor CA swamp in Spring.

I have a picture if you are interested.
