General Description
 
Marston's Dragon is part of the binata complex, a group of sundews with forked leaves. Created by Adrian Slack, it's a cultivar hybrid of D. multifida x dichotoma. It's a great blend of the two plants. It has long red leaves that branches in a similar fashion as D. multifida, and it has the vigor and hardiness of D. dichotoma. It grows well in full sun conditions during the summer months. In winter, you can keep it growing by providing very bright warm conditions. Otherwise, you can grow it outdoors as a warm-temperate plant in zones 8-10. In cold weather, the leaves will die back. As the weather warms up, new leaves will emerge from the root stock. However, dormancy is not at all necessary for this plant.

5 of 5 Great package May 18, 2020
Reviewer: Grayson Schulz from Denton, TX United States  
after it's been about a month now I've transplanted this plan into a another pot that has 3 other carnivorous plants. two being Venus flytraps and then a pitcher plant. but after about a week two of the stems died off from my Marston's dragon however it came with one of the new sprouts already growing and it only took probably 10 days for that new one to fully unfold and grow its wings. and now I have two more new ones that are rapidly unrolling themselves so overall I can't complain I'm happy with it I can't wait for it to start killing stuff

5 of 5 Excellent!! March 16, 2020
Reviewer: Kevin Locke from Bohemia, NY United States  
Packaging was pristine, plants were beautiful and healthy. The dragon almost died, but was our fault for poor light. Placed it in better light, and it has three new sprouts coming. Excellent plants, excellent quality! Thank you!!

Reviewer: Larry from NC United States  
Had no experience with a forked sundew before and this one did not disappoint. Arms are very wispy and is a murder of gnats!
