Description

Drosera spatulata, the spoon-leaved sundew, is a variable, rosette-forming sundew with spoon-shaped leaves. It produces sticky tentacles that it uses to attract and catch flies and other insects. This species is widely variable, but generally plants are about 4 cm (1.6 in) in diameter. In early summer, plants will produce 8 cm (3.1 in) tall erect scapes with around six small white or pink flowers on each one-sided racemose inflorescence. Each flower can be up to 6 mm across.

Drosera spatulata is most often grown indoors as a house plant, though it is a perennial, hardy outdoors in zones 8-10, sometimes zone7.

This sundew has a large range and occurs naturally throughout Southeast Asia, southern China and Japan, Micronesia, Papua New Guinea, eastern Australia, Tasmania and New Zealand. The plant does not form hibernacula in winter, and is easily grown using the same methods as Drosera capensis.

The plants are very hardy, and the seed also germinates without much difficulty, causing little plants to pop up in surrounding pots.

Type: Carnivorous plant, outdoor perennial or houseplant

Location: Sun or part sun

Seeds per pack: 20

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.
