a Lovely Sundew
I grew this little sundew from a seed that looked like a speck of dust. She is just over a year old and measures about 1-1/2" across.
Sundews are carnivorous plants. They produce a sweet sticky nectar "dew" which they use to catch bugs. I love the way they glisten and sparkle in the sunlight.
Sundews make great apartment plants. They stay pretty small and they love to eat gnats!
