Drosera spatulata is more commonly known as the spoon leaf sundew. It is a small, but vigorously growing plant. It will grow to a diameter of two to two and a half inches. This plant will become more red in bright sunlight. When kept indoors, it will likely be more green. Like all sundews, this plant will produce droplets of sticky digestive juice to trap insects. While it does not have the rapid movements of Venus flytraps, the spoon leaf sundew’s leaves will sometimes slowly curl around a meal, but this is a very slow process.
Spoon leaf sundews, unlike Venus flytraps, will not survive winter and should be brought indoors during the winter months and placed in a very sunny (and hopefully warm) window.
