Drosera madagascariensis plant



800px-Drosera_madagascariensis_ne

Carnivorous process:-

The plant grows to a height of 25 cm . The upper part of the plant is composed of carnivorous leaves while the lower part of the stem is covered with the dried remains of older leaves. The leaf arrangement on the stem is alternate.

The petioles are 1.5-3 cm long and support 10-15 mm long and 7 mm wide obtuse to spatulate laminae. The root system is relatively undeveloped, serving mainly as an anchor and for water absorption, since nutrient uptake is achieved through carnivory.
