    Question on watering of a Sundew

    Hi

    I've got a couple of baby sundews, I was going to give one away to a friend but they own have access to tap water (YUCK) any yet we drink it... will the sundew be ok with tap water, can keep like a VFT... does it need shutting down or will in be ok indoors.

    Thanks people for your support and advise

    Some cities have great water quality low in dissolved solids; others do not. In my experience, Drosera in cultivation prefer better quality water than many other carnivorous plants, otherwise they really struggle.

    That depends on the species of sundew you have. If you know what species you have, research the seasonal requirements.
