    I was just curious how you all grow your spoon leaf sundews. Mine is in a giant clump in a 3" pot as it came from the grower. Do you usually let it grow like that, or spread it out?

    Well said. Drosera intermedia is a clumping plant in habitat so I prefer to grow it like that. If you divide them, you'll probably get more plants since they will all tend to clump.

    Actually, the round leaf sundew is D. rotundifolia. The spoon leaf is D. intermedia.

    lol...yay for common vs. latin names

    I've always read that:
    D. intermedia - water/ love-nest sundew
    D. spatulata - spoon-leafed/spatula-leafed (go fig) sundews
    D. rotundifolia - round-leafed sundew

    guess it all depends on what kind of spoons you're accustomed to using... =P

    Yeah, I've always been under the impression that:

    Spoonleaf Sundew = Drosera spatulata

    And to answer the posters original question, it all depends on how I'm growing the Spoonleaf Sundews. If they're just in a pot like yours, I leave them be. If they're in a classic terrarium where they have more room, I let them run rampant! And trust me, Spoonleaf Sundews are crazy little guys. They can take over a whole terrarium within a year or two. They're EXTREMELY prolific, up there with Cape Sundews and Bladderworts.
