Drosera regia – the King Sundew
Unique biology of Drosera regia
Other notable characteristics
They grow well in large pots of 20% perlite to 80% part long-fibered sphagnum moss using the water tray method. Keep them outdoors in cool, frostless climates, or indoors in warm and cool greenhouses. Coastal California windowsills are a great spot. Do note that the plants will reduce in size, or occasionally die back during winter months, but will regrow from the robust root system during warmer weather.
On the topic of roots – Drosera regia don’t take kindly to being disturbed, so once established in large pots, leave them be for multiple years. Any roots that start growing out of the bottom of the pot can be cut off for root cutting propagation (see second photo above for an example of a sprouted root cutting).
