Drosera binata, the Forked Sundew, is a tall perennial herb, 60 cm high. The flowers are pink or white, have 5 petals and are about 2.5 cm across. When an insect becomes entangled in the hairs, the leaves bend inwards so that the insect comes into contact with fine, inner hairs. Enzymes are produced by the hairs which dissolve the insect, which is then absorbed by the leaf. Only the insect's exoskeleton remains which blows away when the leaf hairs uncurl to become erect again, ready for the next meal.
