Tropical sundews beginning to rise from death

by Drone232 » Sat May 02, 2015 10:29 pm

A month and a half ago, I put all my tropical sundews outside for the spring only to have a surprise late frost kill all but one of the dozens. Now I see that one or two are beginning to revive themselves. I decided not to throw them away because I had heard stories of their resurrections and, lo and behold, here it is. How should I proceed? Show I remove it and put it into a different container or leave it where it is? Should it get special treatment?

Awesome! I would leave it where it is and let it keep growing. You risk stressing an already weakened plant if you try to re-pot. Sundews are very tough plants. Many times I have thought one of them to be dead just to see them sprout new growth and come back from the dead as it were.
