Beautiful sub-tropical sundew, with bright colors and very wide traps.
Drosera natalensis is a carnivorous plant for sale at diflora shop: an easy to grow subtropical Drosera from South Africa
Diflora began the micropropagation of Drosera atalensis 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 natalensis grows indoors during the winter period (from November to March) under LED lights at 20°C with 16h of photoperiod. During the warm period (from April to October) the plant is grown outside.
Beautiful sundew from South African, rosetted form, very colorful and easy to grow. Recommended!
As all sundews, Drosera natalensis 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.
