The drosera is a carnivorous plant that belongs to the family of Droseráceas or Droseraceae. There are about 130 species. Origin: The genus is distributed across all regions of the world, mainly Australia.
Cultivation of the plant: It needs good lighting to thrive. Like all the Drosera, it grows well in the shade as long as it is nicely illuminated. It doesn't need direct sunlight, although a few hours avoiding the middle of the day in summer enhances their growth. During wintertime it is recommended to receive the highest number of sun hours as possible. The plant acquires a slight reddish tone when being in contact with sunlight. It is important to avoid the midday sunlight during the months of July-August, as this will likely burn the plant if it is not well acclimatized. Watering: Place the pot on a tray or container with about 2 inches of water. In winter reduce watering, just keep the substrate moist. Most of them are very easy to grow, therefore it is highly recommended for beginners. It reproduces easily by seeds and cuttings.
