 Drosera sp.
Family: Droseraceae
Sundew
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftSemi-shadeRegular waterOrnamental foliage

The genus Drosera has around 160 species, found, all over the world. In fact, save from the frozen Arctic and Antarctic regions, no continent is without Drosera. The common name is Sundew, which is derived from the mucilage that adorns each gland on the leaves of all plants glistening in the sunlight, reminiscent of spring sunshine on early morning dew. Although the common name seems almost delightful, this hides a morbid side to the plants, or more specifically, their prey capture method. Generally, sundews are rosette-forming plants with glands protruding from the surface of the leaf. At the end of each of these glands is a drop of sticky mucilage, and these double as both lure and snare for insect prey. Since the geographical range of these plants varies hugely, so do their cultivation requirements. As a general rule, a soil mix of 1 part sphagnum moss peat to one part sand will suit most species, and will enjoy sunny conditions using the tray method for watering.
