Drosera indica is an annual sundew on sale at diflora’s webshop: it’s an easy to grow Drosera.



What is our source for this Drosera?

Diflora began the micropropagation of Drosera indica from seeds. 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 it?

Drosera indica grows indoors during the winter period (from November to March) under LED lights at 20°C. During the warm period (from April to October) the plant is grown outside in full sun. It is necessary to remember to harvest seed to have a new D.indica generation of plants since the mother plant die after flowering.

What we think about it?

Awesome sundew, a small tree-like growing Drosera, very coloured plant.

What is Its main strategy to catch prey ?

As all sundews Drosera indica 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.
