How to grow Drosera aliciae?

Drosera aliciae is very popular in the collections cause it’s an easy-to-gro plant. In summer it’s better to shade the plant to avoid sunburn by excessive heat.

What do we think about it?

It’s one of the most vigorous and easy to grow  species of  sundews. It well tolerates different light and humidity conditions.

What is Its main strategy to catch prey ?

As all sundews Drosera aliciae catch mainly small  flying insects using sticky modified trichomes placed all over their leaves. These trichomes secrete droplets of water and polysaccharides attracting insects that are searching for sugary substances, like nectar.. As the unawares visitors fatally fly on those sweet and lethal leaves, they stay glued and unable to fly away. It is caused mainly by droplet viscosity. Slowly, the dense liquid of the nearby  trichomes wrap the insect causing a macabre destiny for the unlucky victim: the tracheas, respiratory holes placed on the surface of the exoskeleton of insects, are obstructed causing their death by suffocation.
