The Alice Sundew is a carnivorous plant that grows in bog conditions where they trap insects using their sticky leaves. They need to be constantly damp and if grown in a pot then they need to stand in a dish of about 1cm of water all the time. They must have very bright light and do well on a sunny windowsill. Sundews will not tolerate hard water and should be watered with rain water or soft water. Their use in the terrarium is limited as they need to be damp all the time, but in a palludarium they are ideal growing near the water, providing the light is bright enough. They will catch small livefood though and could potentially trap very small reptiles or amphibians.
