Drosera tomentosa var. tomentosa is a carnivorous plant for sale at diflora shop: a subtropical Drosera from South America
Diflora began the micropropagation of this Drosera 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 tomentosa var. tomentosa 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.
Drosera tomentosa var. tomentosa is a beautiful South American plant. When exposed to strong lighting it became deep red. Recommended!
As all sundews, Drosera Drosera tomentosa var. tomentosa 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.
