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.

Reviewer: brad willet from Annandale, VA United States  
The plant shipped and looked great! Its going into dormant season where I live and where this will be planted so I am excited to see what spring brings. I even asked a question which was handled professionally and so thoughtfully. Really appreciate all you all are doing!

Larger than expected! August 17, 2018
Reviewer: Diego Gutierrez from Aurora, IL United States  
As always with Sarracenia Northwest I am very impressed.  The shipping was fast and it appeared they put a lot of effort into the packaging.  The plant arrived healthy.  After having the plant for three and a half months, it has grown like a weed.  Will continue to shop at Sarracenia Northwest.
