Drosera anglica x tracyi "Southern Cross" Deluxe Potted
This is a new thread-leaf hybrid that is an artificial cross between Drosera anglica and the thread-leaved sundew Drosera filiformis var. tracyi. Drosera anglica has elongated spoon-to-paddle shaped leaves, and is a green plant with red tentacles. Drosera tracyi has long filiform leaves that are nearly pure green. Weirdly, and this often happens with hybrids, the cross of D. anglica x tracyi is a dark red plant, with long thin leaves to about five to six inches. And the leaves have the ability of movement, mostly near the ends, where they can fold up around hapless prey!
Sun: Full sun indoors, or outdoors
Water: Always sitting in at least two inches of distilled or purified water
Temperature: 15 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.
