Our Pink Sundew plant, Latin name Drosera capillaris, is a favorite for a terrarium, carnivorous plant collection, or bog garden. These are "flypaper" plants that catch their prey by getting them stuck on the hairs that are on the leaves. Their leaves are like long tentacles that protrude from the center covered in fine sticky hairs. 

We find that these bog-loving plants do best when kept in a humid environment and only given distilled or rainwater. Also, be sure not to put them in regular soils as it is too nutritious for them and they get too many nutrients. When they are either in your home in a proper environment or outdoors there is no need to feed them on a regular schedule. They should catch some gnats or flies from the air naturally and it doesn't take much to keep them full and fed. 

Available in the following packaging based on your preference:

  • Nursery Pot - Standard plastic 2-inch planter pot that can be placed inside a larger pot or left as is until it outgrows it.
  • Wanda Planter - Elegant Hexagonal patterned ceramic planter pot (approximately 4") with bamboo base. The rocks featured at the top are available for purchase separately. 

If your plant needs added humidity our Plant Mister would make a perfect addition to your plant shelf for both function and beauty.

Wife loves her gift

Our 6yo knew just what my wife wanted for Christmas. VERDANTLYFE.COM Didn't disappoint. The Pink Sundew was in great condition. Shipping was prompt and packed fantastic. Perfect amount of care information. She decided it was potted well and decided not to re pot. Just placed in a vase with rocks to allow for humidity. The plant is still adjusting but quickly began preparations produce flowers. Our son helped her name our new plant. I'm really glad I found this site. She has two more carnivorous plants picked out that I'll be ordering as soon as I finish this review.

happy but damaged

I was happy with the way it was packaged and the plant, but it was actually separated from seed pod. I think it got roughed up in shipping. I am trying to nurse it back to health but I think it is going to die. I will order another one.

Cute little plant

I love how many individual sundew plants are all stacked together. The shipping was great. The plant was in wonderful, and still is, conditions when it arrived. I cant wait to set up a whole carnivorous terrarium for it.

Pink Sundew - Drosera Capillaris

Great little plant.
Arrived healthy with lots of little cousins all around. Even though it was shipped in unseasonably cold weather, the warm packs did their job and the little plant is thriving.
The extra plant (Cape Sundew) was a nice surprise, and a good touch. Thank you.
