Drosera spatulata

(185 reviews) Write a Review
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.

    I have had my plants for several months now and they are amazing. They arrived lovingly packaged. They sit in RO water on the south side of the house window sill did great...moved them to an indoor sun room for plants...its winter in Erie PA...last place you would want to have to depend on solar panels, full spectrum LED lighting. in sun light they are more green. under full spectrum LED the are more red. The first to flower.

    It has been a month - and my little Sundew has been doing valiant battle against small kitchen flies. Lots of new petals - and flower buds. Wish I could post a picture...

    Plant arrived in great shape with a flower stalk. It's getting ready to bloom now about a month later. It's been a fun addition to my windowsill

    I really love this little Sundew. It changes every day giving me a show with its long "sprout" and jewel-like droplets. You will not be disappointed with this little gem! It was packaged with great care and planting and care instructions were solid!

    The spatulata I received was beautiful red and healthy, and even had a bit of dew still on it. Unfortunately it didn't fare too well upon our recent Tennessee heat wave at 94 degrees, even with a week of outdoor acclimation. I noticed after it turned a muddled brownish color, then two babies we're popping up under the mum. I'm just hoping they can recover back to red or find a way to make them happy now so they don't die. But it was beautiful when I got it!
