Growing nicely, and getting larger. It's been catching gnats galore!
I had to bring in my bonsai for winter and had a horrible infestation of fungus gnats. Ordered a couple of these to help get rid of them. Plants arrived in excellent shape and not even 15 minutes of putting them out they were loaded with bugs. Their growth has exploded thanks to being able to eat so good. Highly recommend having these plants around, they make great pest control.
Happy got 2 in the pot.
Still a little kinda gray but it has adapted very well since it is putting out new growth!
I wanted a tropical sundew to keep in a south facing window year round where I also grow some herbs. There were some gnats around the plants and I figured the sundew would help. It's been thriving and eating well. The plant was well packaged for shipping and was dewy and colorful from day one. I'm very satisfied.
I received this along with a spat and graom on June 26. It's July 3. It's still looking kind of gray, but it is getting dewy up top. It is growing a new leaf too! *** RESPONSE BY SARRACENIA NORTHWEST *** Thank you for your purchase! I'm not sure what you mean by "looking kind of gray."
