Plant care

The Drosera ascendens is best kept it in a mixture of peat, sand and perlite or in pure Sphagnum (peat moss). This carnivorous plant can grow well under artificial light. It loves moisture and requires a relatively high temperature (23 ° C minimum). At night the temperature should cool to about 15 ° C. The Drosera ascendens has long roots, so a tall pot is preferred. This plant does well with plenty of light and should regularly be given an 'insect snack’, in small portions.
