Drosera Mix P9

€4.99



Buy Drosera Mix Online or In-Store at Newlands!


Drosera makes an eye-catching , as well as bug-catching, house plant for those looking for a fascinating plant to play with.
They are perennial, with linear leaves up to 2 inches (6.5 cm) long, tapered toward the base. The leaves are densely covered with trichomes (plant hairs) that secrete a sticky sap that attracts insects. The hairs cover the top surface of the leaves and provide a moist appearance that is irresistable to insects. Once an insect is trapped on a leaf, the leaf curls around the insect, bringing numerous sticky trichomes into contact with the insect. Drosera secretes digestive enzymes into this mix when it detects an insect and this continues until the insect is liquified and its soluble contents digested.

Plant Size
• Mature Height: 8cm

Why We Love It
• Long leaves with translucent sticky drops on top that sparkle in the sunlight.
• Easy to grow
• Insectivorous plant

How to Care
• Light
Provide partial sunlight (several hours of direct sunlight with bright filtered light during the day). Avoid full shade. Direct sun can burn them.
If a sunny window is not possible, you can use strong fluorescent lights (a minimum of 40 watts in actual output). Start with the lights approximately 12 inches above the plant. Monitor your plant and adjust the height of the light source if you are not satisfied with its growth

• Watering
If your tap water is relatively pure (less than 50 parts per million in dissolved minerals), then you can safely water your sundews with it. Otherwise, you can use distilled bottled water. Keep the soil wet at all times. You can do this by setting the plant in small amounts of standing water, up to halfway up the pot.

• Soil
Use a soil mixture of 1 part peat moss and 1 part perlite or live sphagnum moss.

• Humidity
Moderate to high. If the relative humidity drops below 50%, you'll want to raise the humidity for your plant.

• Propagation
Collect seeds from flowers that have dried and sow the fresh seeds in peat moss (kept moist at all times). Place the pots in a warm window or under fluorescent lights. Seeds germinate in about 2-4 weeks. To divide, separate new rosettes that form around the parent plant
