Drosera oblanceolata - Sunset Peak Sundew

Drosera oblanceolata - Sunset Peak Sundew

Drosera oblanceolata, also called Sundet Peak Sundew, is a carnivorous plant that displays rosettes covered in sticky hairs that capture insects.

Carnivorous plants survive best in containers. Plant and grow in moist to wet soil mix: 50% peat moss, 50% perlite. Water with pure, low mineral water. Do not fertilize or force feed. Indoor or outdoor. Hardy to zone 8-10.

It is easy to grow with dark red traps and beautiful glistening tentacles in full sun. There are fine white hairs on the petiole. The leaves are spoon-shaped and start green, but go through a nice color change into orange and red. They actively curl over onto their prey. It is a tropical sundew that grows year round, but more actively in Spring and Fall. It can tolerate a wide range of carnivorous plant conditions, but prefers a humid, sunny, cool location with consistently saturated, sandy-peaty soil. It can tolerate a light frost, but this will set it back for awhile. The flowers are pale pink with typically several are open at a time.
