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.


What is our source for this Drosera?

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

How to grow Drosera andromeda?

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.

What do we think about it?

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.

What is Its main strategy to catch prey ?

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.
