Drosera filiformis ssp. filiformis
This plant was first described in 1808 by Rafinesque. You will find this untypical Sundew with its nearly up to 12 inches long, thin traps in North America (from New England up to North Carolina). The soil is there sandy and often not too much wet.
The subgenus "ssp filiformis" is in opposition of the southern subgenus "ssp tracyi" a bit smaller and full coldresistant. If you want to know which subgenus you have - take a look at the glue drops. If you have red glue drops your plant is a "ssp filifromis" and if yor plant has green glue drops you plant is a "ssp tracyi. Drosera filiformis starts flowering in April with pink flowers.
Use tray method in summer and keep your plant in winter nearly dry.
The plant prefers a warm summer (70-80°F are perfect and 60-90°F OK) and a cool winter. The plant requires a winter rest period - so don't overstep a temperature of 50°F. All time the plant should have a bright, sunny place with normal humidity about 60%. The soil should be a mixture of peat and sand (2:1 to 1:1).
For propagation you can use seed (the plant is easy flowering) or leaf cuttings.

Photo downwards: After repotting - the plant is full glue drops.
Here you see plants full of prey - the plants are nearly black.
This leaf is producing small plants - the same way of leaf cuttings. Next picture: Young plants from seed.
