The Drosera petiolaris complex sundews are found in northern Australia in a region with very high rainfall and temperatures in the summer and low rainfall but still hot temperatures in the winter. They appreciate temperatures in the low 30°’s C (mid 80°’s F) during the summer and do not particularly like temperatures below 18° C (65° F) at any time. This presents a challenge growing them without supplemental heating in temperate regions. If you can provide the plants with adequate heat they are fairly easy to grow. Drosera paradoxa is the easiest species in the group to grow since it tolerates lower temperatures. D. petiolaris is also a good choice for beginners as are many of the hybrids.
