Drosera aliciae is a carnivorous plants on sale at diflora webshop: it’s an easy to grow subtropical Drosera from South Africa
Diflora started the in vitro propagation of Drosera aliciae by sterile flask. Micropropagation allows the preservation of the mother plant genome avoiding contamination and genetic variation caused by traditional pollination followed by seeds production
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.
It’s one of the most vigorous and easy to grow species of sundews. It well tolerates different light and humidity conditions.
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.
