Drosera tracyi

(40 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.

    As always with Sarracenia Northwest I am very impressed. The shipping was fast and it appeared they put a lot of effort into the packaging. The plant arrived healthy. After having the plant for three and a half months, it has grown like a weed. Will continue to shop at Sarracenia Northwest.

    The plant shipped great and arrived in top condition. It is outside and sending out new growth daily. It is covered with gnats and is blooming.
