Drosera rotundifolia is the first carnivorous plant that Peter ever saw and fell in love with, so it is a favorite around here. Grow one for yourself and fall in love with carnivorous plants all over again! Great for an outdoor bog garden.
These have been grown under 30% shade cloth and have less coloration. Best to transition to full sun.
Sun: Full sun indoors, or outdoors
Water: Always sitting in at least two inches of distilled or purified water
Temperature: 25 degrees - 80 degrees, can even take temperatures from freezing to 100 degrees but only for short periods
Dormancy: Requires a winter dormancy starting in October and ending in February. Many of the leaves will turn black 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.
