As the most studied flower of the Drosera family, the Roundleaf Sundew is a stunning specimen of carnivorous plants. Growing in the boggy regions of Europe, Asia, and North America, the Roundleaf Sundew is a great choice for a terrarium or a bog-type garden.
This plant prefers to grow in moss and with other bog-type plants in cooler regions and will not do well in temperatures over 85°F (29°C). As a carnivorous plant, Sundew will need a steady diet of flies, bugs, or fish food. They bloom from spring to fall and enter their dormancy period during winter.
This plant is an excellent hunter and will collect its meals using its sticky red tentacles. They also can bloom small, white-pink flowers.
