Drosera binata var. multifida

Drosera (Sundews) comprise a vast global-wide array of plants all adapted to supplementing their nutritional needs by capturing small insect prey on glistening sticky glands that cover their leaf surfaces.  

Drosera binata hails from eastern Australia, and "var. multifida" is a selection which has more heavily forked/branched leaflets.  In time, this plant will form a loose "bush" covered with glistens leaf-traps.

Culturally, this plant does best in bright light and in a potting mix of sand/peat - which should be allowed to sit in a very shallow saucer or container of soft water.  Humidity is usually best at 65% or greater. 

Division-grown plants, currently in 2 1/2" pots. (Sent potted)
