Sundew Botanical Poster - Drosera rotundifolia

The Science:

The Common Sundew is a carnivorous plant most commonly found in bogs and marshes throughout the Northern Hemisphere. Known for its red, hair-like growths that secrete a sticky, sweet liquid called mucilage, it attracts and traps insects. The plant then uses enzymes to dissolve them and absorb nutrients from the proteins. Like other carnivorous plants, it seems to have evolved this behavior in order to allow it to flourish in nutrient-poor acidic environments. This is one of a wonderful series of Scientific German Educational Charts, created in the 1950s and 60s and still produced by the original printer, internationally recognized for producing educational science charts since 1929. These charts are issued today using the original film and same methods as the first printing. They are printed without inscription for both classroom study and decorative purposes, with special attention paid to botanical detail and scientific accuracy.

The Story:

Mounted on linen canvas stretched on wooden rods for display, each measures 44.5 inches tall by 32.25 inches wide (85 cm x 120 cm), and comes with a nylon cord strung through the top wooden rod for easy hanging. Each comes securely rolled and will be shipped to you in a sturdy mailing tube. These lovely botanical posters are large, colorful and impressive pieces of science decor. Add a touch of vintage classroom style to your home today!
