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 Drosera x Marston's Dragon [Sm] July 28, 2015
Reviewer: Lana Weathers from Pensacola, FL United States  
I am very pleased with my recent order. The plants arrived very quickly (especially considering they came from the other side of the country). They were nice sized plants well packed and in good shape. The instruction sheets were easy to understand and appreciated. All plants are growing well.

5 of 5 Small is selling it short July 18, 2015
Reviewer: John C from Oregon  
A surprisingly large plant for a "small," it's getting ready to open its first flower buds a month later.  I'm looking forward to this one getting huge.

4 of 5 Making Progress May 21, 2015
Reviewer: Stephanie Ray from White, GA United States  
The plant was a little small, but I can understand why based on the size of the shipping pot and lid. It is growing some bigger stems but is still a bit puny looking and doesn't keep its dew like the other sundews do. It's probably nothing wrong with the plant, just thought it was a bit odd since all the others are thriving. I just re-potted it, so we will see if that does anything.
