Description

This Sundew is easy to grow! This red leaf form is very distinctive, with deep-red leaves! Very attractive, especially in the sun, the red Sundew hairs are covered in a sticky sap. Once an insect is attached, the leaves curl around the insect to digest it! These plants are most often grown indoors where they can be admired (and help rid the fly population) though they are hardy outdoors in zones 8-10. Grow plants in a bright location, but out of direct hot midday sun. Plant in a mixture of 30% sand and 70% peat moss. Plants never need fertilizer as they obtain their nutrient from the insects that they digest. Watering should be done with rain water or bottled water, as they dislike municipal treated water.

Note: These seeds are extremely tiny! It's just how they naturally are. Reading glasses are recommended to aid with seeing them, even for those who don't normally require glasses to read. The seeds are shipped in either a wax envelope, or folder within a small paper. Open carefully, and sprinkle onto the growing medium. Do not bury the seeds. Germination information is below.

Seeds per pack: 3

Germination: Start these seeds right away for best germination rates. Fill the container with a mix of peat and perlite at a 1:1 ratio. Place the seeds on the surface of the pre-dampened mix, and gently water with a spray bottle. Cover with clear plastic, and place your container in a cool area (but not freezing) for 6 weeks. Once the cold period is completed, place the container at room temperature, and in bright light for them to germinate. Be sure to keep the soil moist during this entire germination period. Most seedlings will sprout within 2-3 months of the warming period, though some may take a little longer. Once plants sprout, slowly remove the plastic, a little bit each day. Always keep the soil slightly moist, never letting it dry out.
