    What are the largest sundews

    hey guys i bought a D. dichotoma, D. multifida extrema , D. x Marston Dragon, and a d capensis. Do you guys know of any other very large sundews or sundews on the larger side? either very wide short leaves or very long narrow leaves, im just looking for sundews on the bigger side besides the drosera regia.. im looking for a good 3 to 4 to add to my collection and idk what to choose from

    To my knowledge, there's a tuberous sundew that grows like 3-feet tall.

    Drosera Traci has leaves that approach 2 feet long

    As far as I know the 2 big ones are D. dichotoma and D. regia. To me they are in a league of their own.

    Also check out Drosera filiformis and Drosear graminifolia. They can get very tall and are impressive plants.

    Our leader is correct, however, I'm going to advise you against trying to procure such a plant. Tuberous sundews can be quite difficult.

    There are rumors of a D. capensis with leaves 1 ft + long. I've seen pictures but AFAIK this is not a very widespread clone.
