Description

This Sundew is easy to grow! This white flower form has mainly green plants, with distinct red sundew hairs that 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 50% peat moss and 50% perlite. Plants never need fertilizer as they obtain their nutrients from the insects they digest. Watering should be done with rain, distilled or reverse osmosis water, as municipal, treated water or well water is likely very unhealthy for these plants.

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: 20

Germination: Sprinkle the tiny seeds on top of the growing medium. Do not cover them. Use a mixture of 50% peat moss and 50% perlite. Cover the container with plastic to retain moisture. Place the container in very bright light at room temperature. Once the small plants begin to grow, slowly open the plastic a little each day. Use rain, distilled or reverse osmosis water (use a spritz bottle while plants are small) to regularly water plants. Generally seeds germinate anywhere from 1 to 3 months, but some stragglers can take up to a year.
