Dionaea muscipula "Red Dragon Flytrap"
This sundew has long thread-like leaves, which gives this plant its common name, dewthread. Long thin leaves slowly rise, standing tall and proud. Small drops of nectar glisten ever so slightly, reflecting the sun's rays and enticing insects to taste its sweet offerings. By the end of summers, the plant is flecked with trophies of its conquests. In winter, the plant will die back and form a resting bud sitting at soil level. Growth will resume in mid-spring.

Excellent plant. Shipped well and growing well. I have no doubts about anything here. It's already killed more than expected. Not sure how I'm gonna clean off all my dead insects lol. Thank you very much your a great business. Can't wait for my next species. So far I've ordered 4 types and they are all doing excellent
been up to 95 degrees and all plants doing well, now waiting to learn winter care
Not alone did they send me 1, they sent me another 1 with it plus dozens upon dozens of little babies. All of which came very healthy.
Plants came in excellent condition. They didn’t even need to be reacclimated - they were ready to thrive!
Nice healthy plant, Thank You
Filiformis arrived healthy and securely packaged good enough to have travelled from Timbuktu.
Plant came very well packaged and healthy and unstressed. It recovered and began producing “dew” within a couple of days. It also tolerates central Texas heat, humidity, and light ver well. It is definitely my most robust drosera.
Keeps low to the ground up to a foot and just keeps on catching insects
Drosera has been curling and catching all sorts of bugs!
I have followed the directions and kept in a try of rainwater and distilled water. Growing rapidly in full sun. If you live in a dry climate you can grow this easily. Best part of my day is to see what it caught.
Received my Drosera in excellent condition! A great addition to our bog garden. Will definitely order more plants!
Just received 2 Drosera Filiformis for our outdoor bog. Plants arrived in excellent condition. Can't wait to see them with their summer growth! Will definitely order again.
