Hystory: 

What is our source for this Drosera?

Diflora began the micropropagation of Drosera gunniana by seeds from Sean Spance. Micropropagation allows the preservation of the mother plant genome avoiding contamination and genetic variation caused by traditional pollination followed by seeds production

How we grow Drosera gunniana?

Drosera gunniana grows indoors during the winter period (from November to March) under LED lights at 20°C. During the warm period (fromApril to October) the plant is grown outside in full sun.

What we think about it?

Tuberous sundew, erect grouth, golden green color. Very elegant and vigorous.

What is Its main strategy to catch prey ?

As all sundews Drosera gunniana 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.
