Drosera spatulata is known as the spoon-leaved sundew because of its’ wee spoon-shaped leaves. The Latin name literally translates to “spatula shaped.” That said, the species is variable, so leaf shape may be a little different depending on which variety you’re ogling. One may look like teaspoons, another soup spoons… you get the idea. D. spatulata varietals are frequently known by the region of their origin.
D. spatulata is a successful sundew having spread across a broad range of territories through Southeast Asia in southern Japan and China, New Guinea, Micronesia, and into eastern territories in New Zealand, Tasmania, and Australia.
This sundew, like Drosera capensis, is an easy grower and often a “weed” among carnivorous plant collections given the copious seed produced and high rate of germination. I’d call that a good problem to have.
