Drosera binata grows long stems with forked leaves that turn vivid red under adequate sunlight. These leaves give Drosera binata the nickname fork-leaved sundew. Drosera binata can grow up to a foot tall, and their leaves are covered in bright red tentacles. Each tentacle has a small droplet of glistening mucilage. Insects become stuck to the tentacles and are then digested by the plant. Once mature, Drosera binata will produce tall, vertical stems with clusters of white flowers. The flowers of Drosera binata produce copious seed making them quite prolific. New plants will also arise from the roots of a mature Drosera binata, which leads to massive clusters of plants.

Always keep plant in about 1/2 to 1 inch of water. Grow in a very bright windowsill or under grow lights. They can go dormant if they get cold.  Bring back with warmth and long photo period.
