General Description
 
Technically, this plant is a subspecies of Drosera filiformis, but we commonly refer to it as Drosera tracyi. A fully grown dewthread is a truly impressive plant. It doesn't curl around insects like other sundews, but you will get to witness its appetite for flies of all sizes. It is a fantastic bug catcher! It's almost like having renewable flypaper. Of all the dewthreads, Drosera tracyi is the tallest of the bunch.

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.
