A putative polyploid hybrid species that is thought to have originated as D. oblanceolata x spatulata, this taxon is among the easiest sundews to grow. Rosettes around 2.5 inches in diameter possess thick oar-shaped leaves with distinct petioles and teardrop-shaped lamina, held semi-erect just off the ground once mature and colored a deep olive green to wine red in good lighting. Wiry stalks are produced regularly and bear moderately large, bright pink self-pollinating flowers.

Packets contain 30+ seeds each. This species requires no special conditions to germinate, and will grow in a wide variety of conditions but does best in hot, tropical and bright environments.
