This hybrid is Drosera tracyi by Drosera filiformis v. floridana. This combines the exceptionally dewy, vigorous tracyi with the all-red Florida filiformis. These plants are richly covered in thick dew along olive-colored leaves with red tentacles. We thought this beautiful little plant deserved a better name so we’re calling it “Creamsicle” like the delicious orangey ice cream treats!
These plants go dormant from October to February and may arrive with little to no leaves. The plants die back to the crown during this period and will grow again vigorously in spring.
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.
