Subtropical sundews are carnivorous plants that produce glue drops in the leaf to capture and digest small insects that they feed on.
They have adapted to a warm climate similar to the tropical one, however characterized by cool but not harsh winters. However, in cultivation they also resist short frosts without any problem.

Growing Tips

Subtropical sundews are very easy to grow in peat and perlite: they love direct sun especially in mid-seasons while in hot summers it is preferable to shade them.
They resist frost down to zero degrees. If the apex dies due to the cold, the roots remain vital to regrow again in spring.
They produce many self-fertile flowers from which you can obtain seeds in late summer.

Watering

They like very wet soil. DO add rainwater or distilled water directly into the saucer. Two-three cm in summer and one cm in all other seasons.
There is no need to vaporize the leaves but to create a lot of diffused humidity while protecting them from wind and rain
