It's CARNIVOROUS! There are an amazing 130 species of Drosera. One thing that all carnivorous sundew plants do have is the gel like substance at the tips of the tentacles that cover the leaves. This gel is a sticky substance that the insects that fly too near the plant get stuck on. The plant can then eat the bug. The many species of the sundew plant can be found all around the world, on every single continent. This is unusual for a plant because most carnivorous plants are found only in one or two regions of the world because of the different climates that they must live in. The plant gets it name sundew because of the gel like substance on the tentacles. The gel makes the plants look as if they have morning dew on them all day long, especially when it glistens in the sun. Some of the different varieties of carnivorous sundew plants are the temperate sundews, which are a red flower that looks like a tube, with tentacles all over it, the pygmy sundews, which are tiny red balls that grow close to the ground with tentacles all around it, and king sundews, which look like a tall, thin cactus with red tentacles up the four sides of it. Our thanks to carnivorous-plants.com for the great information.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
received them very timely. planted them. information on them said they were slow germinating. on a heat mat they took a month to show there tiny dew drop spines. the first thing you can see with a microscope is the droplets on the ends of each spine. a month later you can see them without magnification. have patience, they are very slow growing and only about half have germinated.
Never did anything, not even a little sprout! :(
Not sure why but 4 stars only because mine grew. I'm not bad at growing plants but maybe my soil or weather is bad for these types of plants here.
