Drosera tracyi

(39 reviews)

A fully grown Drosera tracyi is a truly impressive plant. In the right conditions, it forms a tight clump with leaves approaching 20 inches. While its leaves may not curl around insects like other sundews, it has a great appetite for flies of all sizes. It's almost like having renewable flypaper. 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.

Type of Plant: Outdoor perennial for container growing.
Leaves: Up to XX inches at maturity.
Sunlight: Partial to full sun during the growing season.
Water: Low-mineral water (50 ppm or less).
Soil: Equal parts peat moss and perlite only.
Winter: Dormant. Minimal protection in USDA zones 7-9. Mulch in colder regions.

• Acclimated for outdoor growing.
• Shipped in a 3-inch pot. Care instructions are included.

Photos illustrate summer growth. Leaves may not be present during other seasons. See below for more information.

    2 different Drosera to replace 2 others I bought elsewhere. Those never did anything. This tracyi was a very nice size and started growing immediately.

    I have always been very pleased with the quality of your plants, and the care with which they are packaged. I have never had a plant arrive in anything less than perfect condition. Thanks!

    As usual, SNW delivered healthy plants in a timely manner. I have been a longtime customer and will always continue to purchase plants from them.
