This unusual form of D.binata can produce up to 30 leaf points! And is as easy to grow as any of the other fork leaved sundews, best grown in our COM 1 and kept in a very bright sunny position an unheated greenhouse on conservatory would be ideal. These plants look fantastic when grown in a hanging basket, just remember to keep the compost wet through the growing Season March to October.
This plant is a fantastic fly catcher. I kept it on an East facing windowsill all summer. When the sun shines it is quite beautiful, at least until it is covered in flies and other flying insects. It lives in my workshop, where I can see it whenever I am working there. It is a fascinating plant and deserves a spot in any household where carnivorous plants are appreciated.
Being a spidery delicate type the plant arrived in a tangle of slime that needed a bit of teasing once unpackaged. However, after four days the plant found itself and re-dewed. Plenty of new watchspring - like are already unfurling.
One of my favourite sundews.

Quick delivery, but came squashed and not labelled a lot of dead growth. Month later looking much better now, trimmed away old growth now lots of new sprouts shooting up. Can’t wait till it gets bigger.
