Drosera hirsuta (pink flower form) is a tuberous sundew on sale at diflora’s webshop: it’s an easy to grow erect form of sundew.
Diflora began the micropropagation of Drosera hirsuta by Sean Spence’s seeds, bought in 2019. Micropropagation allows the preservation of the mother plant genome avoiding contamination and genetic variation caused by traditional pollination followed by seeds production
Drosera hirsuta grows indoors during the winter period (from November to March) under LED lights placed at 20°C. During the warm period (from April to October) the plant is grown outside in full sun.
It’s a scrambling sundew, bright green color, slim but vigorous, pink flowered.
As all sundews Drosera hirsuta 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.
