Drosera binata 'Golden Green'

New Zealand


This form of Drosera binata is probably(!) from New Zealand. It's mostly the colour that sets it apart from other D. binata.

Etymology: Drosera from Greek droseros ‘dewy’1. Binata means 'having pairs', referring to the forked leaves.2 Golden Green is a reference to the colour of the leaves under intense light.

This form of D. binata has a very nice feature. The leaf lamina and petiole turn a warm orange/red under intense lighting, whilst the tentacles stay bright green. I personally find this contrast to be very pleasing to the eye, and it's my favourite form. The 'Golden Green' is also a T-form binata, which means it only forks once.
