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.

Leaves: Up to 8 inches at maturity.
Sunlight: Partial to full sun during the growing season.
Water: Low-mineral water (50 ppm or less).

    Healthy and hardy

    Arrived in a healthy dormant state. I was able to plant it out in the bog immediately and it woke up like nothing had happened as soon as it warmed up. This plant was better acclimated than other nurseries i've purchased from.

    This was my first hardy sundew and I fell in love with it the moment I took it out of the box. It was very healthy and looked like I just picked it up from the nursery. It has grown a lot the past few weeks and has gone to town on the gnats in my yard.

    She just finished flowering beautiful delicately pink little flowers that brought us lots of joy. She seems to be enjoing the south facing sunny window she shares with other carnivorous and suculent plants. Thank you for making sure that your plants are doing well in my home.

    This plant is spectacular! I've never seen so many mosquitos drawn to a plant! And the best part? They're all stuck! The customer service is top notch and they're really good at providing information about the plant and the care the plant needs. Couldn't be happier with my purchase! We've even got little flowers blooming on her! I will be purchasing more to fill a large pot with nothing but these plants! Highly recommend this business! :)

    DROSERA FILIFORMIS

    Posted by Tiffany Stark on June 14, 2023

    I am overjoyed with this little plant! She arrived in beautiful, healthy condition and is thriving in her new home. When she arrived, she did not have any dew on her leaves due to shipping, but will return within a couple weeks. When I received her, she already had a beautiful stamen covered in flower buds, so it'll be a treat to watch them grow and bloom! She's got a few babies growing out of the center already and is just a gorgeous plant! I have just ordered a Black Knight pitcher plant, so I'm very excited to see the one they intuitively choose for me, they did a great job choosing my baby sundew! Thank you all for cultivating and maintaining such beautiful species of carnivorous plants and giving us, as shoppers, a great experience with growing our own!
