Drosera spatulata

(160 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.

    Thank you SNW for taking such great care with the handling and shipping of my plants. I love my new sundews! They arrived in perfect shape, and they were much larger than similar sundews I had recently purchased from one of your competitors. I will absolutely be purchasing from SNW again in the future!

    Great little plant

    Researching options to naturally control a fungus gnat problem I decided to try carnivorous plants first. I picked the spatulata because of its size and I liked the look of it. It came very well packed inside a plastic cup, which was well packed inside a box. The box was a little damp from carrying wet plants, but it wasn't damaged at all. Of my purchase, I think the spatulata is my favorite, it's rather cute as far as plants go. Opening the container it seemed to travel very well & it came out of travel shock quite nicely, was covered in dew within a couple days & already catching gnats. It came with several small curled stems that I thought were going to be new leaves but in fact were flower stems, it's currently sporting 4 stalks and I'm waiting to see what the buds on the tallest will look like when/if they open. Overall very happy with the plant itself & the whole buying experience.
