Description

The Red Thread-leaf Sundew, is a cultivar of Drosera filiformis. Its long red, thread-like tentacles can reach upwards of 15cm. These thread-leaved, slender, and filamentous leaves unfurl from a center rosette, reaching up sky-high to attract and trap low-altitude insects. Really effective for attracting and catching small flying insects like mosquitoes or small flies. They are covered with numerous sticky red tentacles that glisten in the sunlight. It is a very showy plant and gets a lot of attention in the community garden.

No fertilizer required. Fertilizers are like toxins, especially for carnivorous plants. Their roots are very sensitive to minerals and often die when they come in contact with minerals.

Feeding is strongly discouraged by our community. Carnivorous plants have the ability to lure and hunt down insects. There is no need for us to feed them. Often, when we feed them, we tend to damage the plants’ traps. However, if you want to feed them, you can feed them 1 insect every 1-2weeks. Do note that the insect must be 1/3 the size of leaves.
