Drosera x Dreamsicle

(6 reviews) Write a Review
This is plant is a cultivar of Drosera filiformis var. floridana and D. tracyi. The plant has long thread-like leaves with an orange hue. Small drops of nectar glisten ever so slightly in the bright morning hours, enticing insects to taste its sweet offerings. By summer's end, the plant is flecked with trophies of its conquests. In winter, the leaves will die back, and the plant will form a resting bud sitting at soil level. During dormancy, protect the resting bud from extended temperature drops below 20°F. Growth will resume in mid-spring.
