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.

This plant will be shipped bare-root with a 3" plastic pot and enough top-quality New Zealand long-fiber sphagnum moss to fill it. Planting and growing instructions will also be included.

Doing great now October 17, 2016
Reviewer: Nico Campo from Turnersville, NJ United States  
I ordered this and a drosera affinis both of them were wet and dewless. I suppose thats fine but the binata was half dead. Don't know if it's going dormant or just dying. edit: I take all that back. the plant is doing great and it survived it's first winter. : )

Was great for 2 days October 12, 2016
Reviewer: Korbin Fritzler from Las Vegas, NV United States  
Looked great for 2 days dewing up and everything caught a tons of bugs and wilted up and died and hasnt come back yet i dont get it. I ordered 7 plants from here and this is the only one who isnt still thriving. I wish I knew what I did wrong... No instructions were provided. Would give it 2 stars but sont think it was fair.

A good quality plant, but shipping takes its toll October 12, 2016
Reviewer: Rachel Hixson from Alabaster, AL United States  
The plant that was ordered was clearly healthy when it was originally sent, but caution should be taken when ordering this long, thin sundew variant as bare-root. Being in the mail for two days, and only having long-fiber sphagnum moss rather than the more ideal peat or sand mixture, it continues weeks after I have obtained it to struggle to produce its first healthy tendrils. The plant isn't dead, but before you order it, get something else to pot it in, because long-fiber sphagnum continuously appears to disagree with it.
