    The easiest of all the sundews to grow, the leaves wrap themselves around smaller houseflies, midges and mosquitos. An ideal starter plant, much easier to grow than the Venus flytrap and perfect for growing with other houseplants where small flies can live on the compost.

  • Home care: This carnivorous plant should be watered from below during the growing season. The easiest way to do this is to stand the pot in a saucer that is filled with 1cm of soft water. Ideally the pot and water-filled saucer should be kept on a tray of gravel as this will help keep the humidity high. When the plant is dormant, water only when the compost gets dry, making sure the excess can drain away freely. Pot on in spring using a specialist compost.
