Love my Sundew. Been a week now since I've gotten it. I can't see as much dew on it as my other ones but I'm hoping that it just needs time to adjust

Plant Description
  • Species: Drosera
  • Drosera madagascariensis is a subtropical sundew native to Madagascar, Botswana and South Africa
  • This is an easy grower and very unique in that it produces tall stems with linear, oblong spoon-like leaves covered by sticky dew.  Drosera Madagascariensis tends to topple over when they reach maturity and is also notorious for generating a new generation seedlings from the roots after the main stem die off after some time
  • Bite-size info:
    • 🏡 Outdoors or indoors with artificial lighting
    • 📅 Subtropical. Summer growing
    • 🌱 Mature size: 15-20cm
    • 🏆 Recommended for: All levels carnivorous plant enthusiasts

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

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
  • 💤 Dormant in winter if grown in natural light
  • ✅ Detailed care information is available in our online reference guide and the weblink is included with your purchase 

Special considerations:

  • Grow outdoors in very bright light (but with protection from full midday sun in summer)
  • Drosera Madagascariensis prefers warm temperatures and thrives in around 25°C in Summer and 15°C in Winter. If grown in an outdoor setting with cold winters, the main stem tends to die off during autumn and new plants sprout from the roots when conditions are favourable again
