Drosophyllum lusitanicum is a carnivorous plant that lives in environments that are not strictly marshy; indeed, the soil for this plant must be very draining and the water must be dosed sparingly in the saucer.
It produces long leaves covered in gelatinous glue and captures many flying insects


Growing Tips

It loves direct sun both in summer and winter and uses a very drained soil such as the specific mix for cephalotus and drosophyllum.
In spring it gives abundant yellow flowering.
It is self-pollinating and after about a month the capsules will be dry and the seeds can be harvested. It is a plant that lasts about 3-4 years.


One cm of water is enough in summer and when it is finished you can wait a couple of days before dosing it again in the saucer.
In winter, watering must be almost completely suspended.
