Quick Overview

Quite possibly the easiest carnivorous plant to grow, the Drosera capensis is a great plant for the beginner.

This all red variety will develop a gorgeous red hue when given good light.

Product Description

Drosera capensis red, also called the Cape Sundew, originates in the Cape area of South Africa. Although a fairly rare plant in nature, the Drosera capensis grows easily in cultivation and unlike many carnivorous plants does not require a dormancy period, which makes it less challenging for beginners.

Drosera capensis red is mostly a beautiful red, especially when given good light, and can go from scarlet to burgundy depending on the light. Amazingly, leaves curl in over time to trap insects who are lured in by the sparkly sweet dew drops that top the many red fibers on the leaves.

Bright pink flowers grace the flower stalks when they bloom in early summer. Collect the seeds from the dried flower stalks, so you can grow more! Drosera capensis red will not need a dormancy unless it is subjected to very little light or cold temperatures, and then will have a semi-dormancy.
