Pygmy sundews are noted for their miniature size, often only 1/4-inch in diameter. Drosera scorpiodes is one of many species of pygmy sundews native to Australia. For a pygmy, this one is a giant! During its first year, it grows up to 2 inches tall. As the plant matures, it continues to grow an inch or two each year. The lower portions will turn brown, but the upper portion will remain green. They seem to reach a maximum height of 8 inches. The leaves resemble the tail of a scorpion and has dewy tentacles that wrap around flies and other small insects. What a beast! Grrrr!

    The 3 sundews I received were in excellent shape. There was much care giving to the packing and shipment of the plants. All of the plants are doing great!

    I am following al the grow directions for this species but it is not doing as well as the 2 pitcher plants that came in same shipment. It is still hanging on but barely. Came well packaged, in great condition with growing instructions. Sadly perhaps not species for this household

    Drosera Scorpiodes

    Posted by KK on August 16, 2015

    I have had these plants for about a month and they are in great condition. I received four extremely well packaged plants, two of which were 2-2.5 inches long with 4-5 carnivorous leaves each, the other two were about an inch long and have developed carnivorous leaves within the last week or two. All plants were received and remain healthy and are showing considerable growth despite rather rough replanting.

    The sundew arrived healthy and carefully packaged. I've had it for about a month and it is still doing well and growing.

    Another Great looking Sundew

    These Sundews are so interesting that when they arrived and I got them conditioned to the area, I just had to order several more of them for the other rooms.
