Drosera adelae "Giant" [SM]

(8 reviews) Write a Review
The giant form differs from the regular form by its size. Its leaves will typically grow twice as large, up to 12 inches, depending on the growing conditions. Other than that, its care is exactly the same and is an excellent plant for beginners. It's well adaptable to a variety of light conditions. Grow in medium light for wide green leaves. Grow in very bright light for narrower, red leaves. It is also extremely prolific. It sends out runners that form new plants from under the soil. A single plant in a 4-inch pot can easily fill up that space within 6 months! The lance leaf sundew makes a great companion plants for orchids, such as Phalenopsis. Look for red star-shape flowers in early winter.

    Plant arrived to NC in about 5 days and was in great shape. Naturally, there was no dew upon arrival, but it has come into its own quickly! It appears that it was a clump of younger plants (I've counted about 5-7) and they are all growing well. No complaints here, can't wait to order more! Thanks SNW!

    One of my favorite Drosera!

    Posted by Philip Brookins on August 16, 2020

    I think my D. adelae is my favorite out of all my drosera. I keep this plant on my sunny windowsill and it seems happy. In fact, every morning it seems to have one or two new flies! Woo!
