THE OPTIONS

Cultivo is all about choices and our plants are available in various sizes and options to suit your every need

Bareroot or potted?
  • We recommend sundews as potted plants for beginner carnivorous plant enthusiasts - simply unwrap, water and enjoy!  Potted plants are sent with a protective covering and will be good in this soil for another 6-9 months.  Planter sizes are selected in relation to plant size and range from 5cm to 10cm pots unless otherwise mentioned
  • Bare root plants are for those who wish to pot up and acclimatise their own plants.  Sundews generally have very fragile roots and may take a while to settle in.  Bareroot plants are rinsed and sent in a protective covering with roots wrapped in damp paper towels

HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR PLANT

Plant care & special considerations
  • 🏡 Grow in a frost free area outdoors or terrarium with 12-16 hours artificial (full spectrum) lighting
  • ☀️ Requires a minimum 6 hours direct sunlight
  • 💧 Moist, nutrient-free soil (rain or distilled water)
  • 🍴 No need to feed
  • 🌷 Cut flowerstalks for a healthier, dewy plant
  • 💤 No Dormancy required.  Shade during summer
  • ✅ Detailed care information is available in our online reference guide and the weblink is included with your purchase 

Special considerations:

  • General care includes distilled- or reverse osmosis water via the tray method and low to moderate light - Let the tray dry slightly between waterings
  • Drosera prolifera prefers cool and humid conditions year round and would thrive in a controlled terrarium setting or moderately lighted windowsill
  • This plant is finicky about water quality and prefers distilled- or reverse osmosis water to limit humic acid buildup on the crown of the plant
