What we think about it?

Pinguicula Gypsicola is small sized Pinguicula with green erect leaves  A good choice for beginners. Violet flower

What is Its main strategy to catch prey ?

As all sundews, Pinguicula Gypsicola 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.
