Sundew: properties, benefits and uses (Australian Flower Essence and Remedy)

Sundew is an Australian flower remedy made from Drosera spathulataPromotes recovery in case of fainting and drowsiness and is useful for unfocused students. Let’s find out better.

Description of the plant

Drosera spathulata – Insectivorous plant that grows in swampy areas and on the banks of streams, in the southwestern area of ​​Western Australia, from northern Queensland to Tasmania. It is widespread in South America, Asia, some Pacific islands and in New Zealand.

Commonly known as ‘Spoonleaf Sundew’ (sundew with spoon leaves): at the base of the plant there is in fact the rosette formed by flat, bright red, spoon-shaped leaves, covered with filaments that exude a sticky substance, similar to dew, which attracts insects. By touching a single filament, everyone is stimulated to close on the victim, who is trapped and digested. After a few days the tentacles reopen waiting for the next victim.

From the leaves rises the long stem that supports the white or pink flowers, which bloom in spring. The plant manages to survive the dryness of the soil in the summer season. The Signatura shows us how the flowers rise above a solid base (the rosettes, on the ground, present all year round, which keep the light flowers rooted), swinging in the breeze: the remedy brings out the rooting, the practical sense, the its ‘anchoring’ effect.
