Drosera intermedia

(69 reviews) Write a Review
This eye-catching plant gets up to 3 inches tall and 3 inches in diameter. Its uniform shape gives it the appearance of a miniature tree. The only difference, of course, is that this tree sparkles in sunlight! It also curls itself around captured insects. In the wild, this sundew is found in parts of boggy areas that are often flooded with an inch or two of water.  In cultivation, keep the water level fairly high, about 3/4 of the way up the pot. In winter, the leaves will die back, and the plant will form a resting bud sitting at soil level. Growth will resume in mid-spring.

    I’ve been looking for some droseras for a while they are such an interesting looking plant, and they are really good at getting the gnats that come along with my indoor plants

    A beautiful plant.

    I have not had much success with sundews in the past but I decided to try again with this one and now it is one of my favorite plants. The plant came in great condition. Then we had a cold snap- I had to cover it and it got a little frost nipped. I emailed the folks at Sarracenia Northwest and they were very helpful, my little plant pulled through and now is returned to normal and catching bugs.
