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.

Even better than I expected! August 4, 2019
Reviewer: David F. from Kingston, WA United States  
2 different Drosera to replace 2 others I bought elsewhere. Those never did anything. This tracyi was a very nice size and started growing immediately.

I have always been very pleased with the quality of your plants, and the care with which they are packaged.  I have never had a plant arrive in anything less than perfect condition.  Thanks!
