Caption: Drosera binata, commonly known as the Forked-leaved Sundew, is a perennial, carnivorous plant native to Australia and New Zealand. It is a species of the genus Drosera, the Latin epithet 'binata' meaning paired, which refers to the dichotomously forked leaves of the species.It grows in peat lands, bogs and moist sand or clay soils, springing from a bud by early spring. The narrow, branching leaves grow rapidly, while unrolling much like ferns, reaching a height of ± 30 cm. In summer it carries small (10 – 15 mm) flowers that are self-pollinating. It feeds on insects, mainly small flies that get stuck in the plant's web of sticky branches.
