Drosera adelae ‘Giant’ is a large form of the Lance-Leaf Sundew and can grow up to 12 inches in diameter in ideal conditions. It is one of the “Three Sisters of Queensland” along with Drosera prolifera and Drosera schizandra. D. adelae ‘Giant’ is an easy sundew to care for if given plenty of humidity and low light. Exposed roots will produce many plantlets along their length.

    All plants arrived quick and very healthy. A decent size too.

  2. dustin lynn (verified owner)

    Was healthy, had good roots that were wrapped in sphagnum moss that was moistened, the whole thing was seal in a small Ziploc bag this helped keep humidity high, there was dew present on the sundew leaves. Overall a good quality plant, what I have come to expect.
