Sparking dew entices insects, which quickly find themselves victim to the cruelties of Mother Nature, and a wonder of the botanical world. This Mexican variety produces some of the larges leaves in the genus and flowers religiously from May to September. Grown best in peat & sand, this butterwort also grows well in the crutches of rocks or in abalone shells.

Very easy to grow indoors in bright light.
