Tissue Culture of Drosera

I was wondering if some of you out there could give me some advice on
tissue culture of Drosera (D. capensis and D. binata specifically)? I
am an undergraduate student taking a class on tissue culture and my
professor has given us a project where we choose a plant (such as a house
plant) to reproduce through this method. One piece of information I need
right away is what culturing media is appropriate so that I can get it
ready ASAP (my teacher gave us two days to find this out!). I have not been
able to find any sources on tissue culturing Drosera, so any information you
have or you could direct me to would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
