General Description Plants You Receive Quick Care Guide
Drosera binata, produces long, slender leaves that branches into two points, which gives the plant its common name, fork-leaf sundew. As you look closely, you will find sticky droplets all along the leaves. These droplets both attract and capture insects! An adult plant can easily capture insects as large as a housefly.

With an adult plant, leaves can approach 12 inches and produce a dazzling display. Give this plant lots of sun to keep its leaves upright. Grow it in a south window with unobstructed sunlight for best results.

Plants You Receive
Your plant will be shipped potted in a 3-inch pot and will reach flowering maturity within two growing seasons. All plants were propagated from seed. Photos are representative of the batch for sale.

Arrived in perfect condition. Much bigger and bushier than I expected. It's growing fast and doing fantastic in my windowsill.
