Stylidium debile

This product is currently out of stock and unavailable.

Descrizione

Lo Stylidium debile è una pianta perenne originaria dell’Australia. Questa pianta è intrigante per il suo meccanismo di impollinazione unico: quando un insetto si posa sul fiore, una parte sensibile si attiva, spingendo il polline sull’insetto per trasferirlo ad altri fiori.

Origine:
Australia

Care instructions

How we grow Stylidium debile?
In-vitro plants are acclimated in a Growth Chamber with controlled temperatures and humidity. This indoor setup ensure an easy adaptation to extra-vitro condition, guaranteeing the best conditions for plants in this delicate stage. All plants available at the Diflora shop have been acclimatized for at least 3 months. After this first phase plants are grown indoors year-round at a temperature of 20°C and a photoperiod of 16 hours. Stylidium are placed under 4000/5000 lux produced by LED lights with a colour temperature of 6400K. As with the majority of carnivorous plants, we use distilled water produced by our reverse osmosis system.

Lighting:
Stylidium debile thrives in tropical rainforests, where it typically grows in an environments characterized by diffused or filtered light. While it can adapt well to direct sunlight with proper acclimatization, it’s advisable to provide some shade during the warmer summer months to prevent excessively high temperatures that could hinder the plant’s growth.

Watering:
Stylidium likes stagnant water all year round (3-4 cm of distilled water always in the saucer). This serves to faithfully imitate the natural environment in which they live. It is important to use only distilled water or alternatively all waters that have an extremely low mineral salt content. For example rainwater or all condensation water (air conditioner, dehumidifier). It’s important that the conductivity measures below 50 micro-Siemens.

Substrate:
Stylidium debile does not tolerate nutrients. We avoid peats with neutral pH or nitrogen fertilisers, which are often found in potting soils for acidophilic plants. The peat must be pure, the Stylidium debile substrate we recommend is 50% pure acid sphagnum peat and 50% perlite.

Seasonally and temperature:
Stylidium debile is topical plant but very tolerant with temperatures.
These genus plants don’t go into dormancy. They can be grown on cool, sunny windowsills, but the best plants are grown in climate-controlled greenhouses or terrariums where temperatures don’t drop below 5-10°C. In winter is very important to protect them from frost.

Source

Diflora started the in-vitro propagation of Stylidium debile from plant parts that comes from very experienced european growers. Micropropagation allows the preservation of the mother plant genome avoiding contamination and genetic variation caused by traditional pollination followed by seeds production.

Trapping technique

Stylidium debile has specialized hairs with sticky glands similar to those of Drosera on its flower stem. Once the prey is captured, the plant secretes digestive enzymes to break down the insect’s body and absorb nutrients. This process provides the plant with valuable nutrients, especially in nutrient-poor soil conditions that are common in its natural habitat. Stylidium debile’s unique feature is its trigger mechanism within the flower. It has a structure with a “trigger” that holds the anthers (male reproductive parts). The trigger is sensitive to touch and snaps when triggered.
