big sized temperate Drosera.
Drosera spiralis is a carnivorous plant for sale at diflora shop: a temperate Drosera from Australia.
Diflora began the micropropagation of Drosera binata var. multifida from seeds. Micropropagation allows the preservation of the mother plant genome avoiding contamination and genetic variation caused by traditional pollination followed by seeds production
Drosera spiralis grows outdoor all year. In fact it is a Australian Sundew, but it behave like a temperate sundew that goes into vegetative rest during winter.
As all sundews, Drosera binata var. multifida 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.
