Drosera andromeda is a carnivorous plant on sale at diflora’s webshop: it’s a cross between Drosera prolifera and Drosera schizandra.
The hybrid was made by Kamil Pasek at Best Carnivorous Plants.
Diflora started the in vitro propagation of Drosera andromeda 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
It is an indoor growing plant in winter (from november to march). We grow it under grow lights at 20C°. During the warm season (from April to October) we prefer to place Drosera andromeda outdoors, in shadow, using a rain system as a watering method.
It’s one of the most vigorous species of Queensland’s sundews. It well tolerates different light and humidity conditions. It has also one of the largest leaves of the genre.
As all sundews Drosera andromeda 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.
