Drosera spatulata (the spoon-leaved sundew) is a carnivorous plant in the Droseraceae family that are native to Southeast Asia. They are fuzzy pet safe, but may catch small lizards and frogs when they are babies and not able to free themselves and should be kept away from these plants.

  • Drosera spatulata form small rosettes growing about two inches across in maturity, putting off bright pink flowers frequently (there will be no flowers on the ones that are shipped so that they can be shipped safely, however they will likely flower again shortly after getting settled in their new home).
  • Their spoon shaped leaves produce a red dew that lures small bugs and insects who stop for a drink and get stuck and then the leaves of the sundew will gently wrap around the bug and absorb all of its nutrients, opening back up to have their little shells blown away or washed out by the next rain.
  • Plants will arrive in one 2.5 inch deep pot, fully rooted and in the correct medium.

Basic Care:

  • Plants should only be given rain, reverse osmosis water or distilled.
  • Partially cold hardy, they should be protected from frost and brought inside if the temperatures are going to dip below freezing.
  • Plants prefer bright, indirect light or limited full sun so that they don’t burn up. We keep them in a bog under pine trees, mimicking the natural environment of the plant in both temperatures and location.
  • Should be potted in a mix of peat moss and perlite.
  • Should be given boggy conditions, sitting in water that goes about a quarter inch up the side of the pot.
  • These plants do not require dormancy.

Be sure to read the care guide included with your plant to ensure proper watering and care. Never fertilize or feed people food!


Winter Shipping

96 hour HEAT PACKS are available under the Accessories category. Due to the colder weather and the postal delays from Covid-19 and the increased number of packages during the holidays, we are only offering the larger, 96 hour heat pack and are upgrading all orders with a heat pack to Priority to hopefully ensure that the heat pack is still working upon arrival.

If the daytime temperature in your area or mine is below 45 degrees, we recommend a heat pack. If your area is going to be extremely cold, then you may need two heat packs. If you do not want to include heat packs during cold weather, then you take full responsibility if your plant freezes. We may check the weather between South Carolina and your location, and send a message to recommend adding a heat pack. We do not leave our plants outside for the post office to pick them up and instead take the plants to the post office before the postal truck comes at 4pm so that they are not sitting outside in the elements. We want to provide you with the highest quality plants possible and between our cost and the extra added cost of shipping, there is no mark up on heat packs and they are simply provided as a service to ensure your plants arrive safely.


They last at least 96 hours. Due to mail delays, we are only offering the 96 hour heat pack at this time. For an additional $7 charge, we are offering a shipping upgrade to priority shipping with an included heat pack. We cannot be responsible for plants that were damaged by extreme cold where a heat pack was not purchased, so please check your weather and take postal delays into consideration.
