Drosera (Sundews)

The flypaper-like traps of Drosera possess numerous glistening, sticky, tentacle-like glands which capture insects by means of an adhesive mucilage. Leaves can actually slowly fold over and envelop prey. The tropical Australian and African species are recommended for either terrarium or outdoor cultivation during the growing season. Temperate species require a cold winter dormancy.
