Forked Leaf Sundew Care Tips

Sun: Full sun outdoors.  If your sundew stops producing dew, it most likely needs more direct light

Water: Always sitting in at least two inches of distilled, reverse osmosis or rain water

Soil: Four parts peat moss to one part perlite.  Re-pot every three to five years or if the sundew completely out grows the pot

Temperature: 20 degrees - 80 degrees, can even take temperatures from freezing to 100 degrees but only for short periods

Fertilizer: Apply diluted Maxsea fertilizer (1/4 teaspoon of Maxsea into one gallon of water) to the leaves of your sundew once per month.

Dormancy: Requires a winter dormancy starting in October and ending in February. Many of the leaves will turn brown and die back during this time. Leave them outdoors in full sun, sitting in distilled water during this period. If you live in an area that snows; over winter them indoors on a sunny windowsill in an unheated room or garage. Still sitting in full sun and distilled water.
