Drosera dichotoma, Giant Staghorn
As a native to southern Australia and New Zealand, this plant is surprisingly cold hardy. At our nursery, we've had very large adult plants survive winter temperatures as low as 10°F with almost no winter protection. During the growing season, Drosera dichotoma will produce slender leaves that branches into as many as 4 points per leaf. (Juvenile leaves have only 2 points per leaf.) In winter, its leaves will die back to the soil. In spring, the plant will emerge from its long, thick roots. Give this plant lots of sunlight during the growing season.
Type of Plant: Outdoor perennial for container growing.
Leaves: Up to 12 inches at maturity.
Sunlight: Full sun during the growing season.
Water: Low-mineral water (50 ppm or less).
Soil: Equal parts peat moss and perlite only.
Winter: Dormant. Minimal protection in USDA zones 7-9. Mulch in colder regions.

Well packaged for mailing, arrived in excellent condition, and is now on my "patio of death".
Excellent but small specimen, survived the shipment without damage, and is producing new leaves. Will have to buy more, as this is one of my favorite specimens.
Drosera dichotoma came as expected. Some brown shoots upon receipt. Today plant is growing as expected.
Really healthy, surprisingly large plant. It is growing like gangbusters.
This is by far my favorite sundew! It grows like a weed and gets BIG fast! It also catches more bugs than any other sundew I have.
