This species is a demure plant. When fully grown, it is just under 2 inches in diameter, but it can reproduce itself by sending out shoots, producing a mound of multiple plants with spoon-shaped leaves. Give it ample sunlight in a sunny windowsill. With the right care, your plant will produce lovely pink flowers for you. It's an excellent plant for the first-time grower.

    Drosera Spatulata

    I've really enjoyed this so far as my first carnivorous plant. I want to keep Heliamphora eventually so I chose this as my intro to carnivores. I keep it in an open topped rimless glass aquarium with 2 inches of distilled water, like the instructions said, under a 15 watt led plant fixture. I feed it fungus gnats and fruit flies and it's been eating and growing!

    First carnivorous plant buy

    The plant looked fantastic when I got it and was really well packaged. It has grown little green appendages wonderfully and quickly. It hasn’t produced few yet but I think it might be sunlight limitations from being in my dorm

    Beautiful plant

    I bought this with another drosera (capensis) to battle fungus gnats in my seed starting project. The capensis has far outperformed this plant, although the spatula is prettier.

    Growing big and clustered

    Plant arrived in good shape. It has grown nicely and in an expanding clump full of sticky spatulas. It sure loves sending up flower, too!
