This rare sundew is native to the mountains of Brazil. It has an interesting habit of creating an ever-increasing pile of older (dead) leaves, with the growing leaves situated on the top of the stack; sometimes these stacks can get up to 5 inches tall! Each leaf is covered with scores of crimson hairlike tentacles which have a drop of glistening, sticky 'dew' on their tips. When small insects (fruit flies, gnats, and other small flying insects especially) come into contact with the dew, they become mired and are eventually digested by the plant. What a unique way to reduce these pesky little insects in your home, yard or greenhouse! All our plants are shipped potted to reduce stress, and are ready to grow.
