Drosera binata, Forked Leaf Sundew, live carnivorous plant, potted


This is a small - medium leaved sundew native to Australia, New Zealand and Tasmania! Known as the "Forked Leaf Sundew" due to the shape of the long, slender leaves. Most leaves are two pronged reaching toward the sky. They can grow bushy (especially whenever there are multiple plants together) and generally grow upright.  They are excellent at catching small insects like ants, mosquitoes, and gnats. They are a temperate species meaning that they will go dormant in the winter and form a hibernaculum. They do well outdoors or on a sunny windowsill. 

They are currently in a 3.5" pot and will be shipped potted.

Drosera Care: Sundews do best in partial shade to full sun. They are well suited for growing on window ledges or outdoors during warm months. They must be watered with non-chlorinated water preferably with a low TDS (between 0 and 25ppm). You can use rain water, RO or distilled. Allow to dry slightly but not completely in between waterings. When watering, place plants in a tray and pour water in tray about 1/2” (referred to as the tray method). Avoid watering the crown of the plant. Temperature should be maintained between 60°F and 85°F. They are not too particular about humidity requirements. If your Drosera has little to no dew, increase light. They generally do well in open terrariums. 

*Never use fertilizers or soils with salts, minerals, or added fertilizers
