Drosera filiformis filiformis or Thread-leaf Sundew is among the largest of all the North American sundews. D. filiformis filiformis is slightly smaller than D. filiformis tracyi. Its long tentacles can reach upwards to 18 inches. They are covered with numerous sticky red tentacles that glisten in the sunlight. It is quite noticeable from a distance and appears to shine silvery-pink. It gets a lot of attention at the Nursery. It prefers open, sunny bog conditions and does not grow in Sphagnum Moss. It can tolerate drier conditions than most sundews, and competes well with other non-carnivorous plants. It emerges late in the Spring and lasts throughout the Summer and Fall. It forms a large sturdy winter hibernacula (resting bud), which is best pushed down to the surface in early Spring for best growth. The numerous flowers are pink on tall scapes. It flowers from May to June, and frequently produce abundant seeds. Seeds need to be stratified (cold, damp winter storage), and can be stored for several years. Drosera filiformis filiformis is a dramatic carnivorous plant for your collection or bog garden. This selection comes from seed, and will show some natural variations. In it's dormant season, it will be shipped as a dormant hibernaculum. Juvenile plants may be shipped. For maximum effect plant use multiple plants in a 6" pot.
