Hello guys, I would like your opinion about this plant, I bought the seeds as Capensis Bainskloof, it is still young, but would it really be that "Bainskloof" ?.

There are several forms of Drosera capensis that grow in the BainsKloof mountain pass.
I think the most famous form has lamina that are wide but short with an Orange-Red coloration.
Here is a discussion of the various forms, it comes from the UK CP forum: https://www.cpukforum.com/forum/index.p ... nes-kloof/

Here are some photos of Bain's Kloof capensis that I have grown.
One was a purchase from a fellow grower 5-6 years ago.
One was a gift from the famous Fishman.
Some were seedgrown from my self-pollinated first plant.

Hello Shadowstki, looking at your photos, I can see that there is a lot of difference between mine and your Bainskloof, maybe the shape of mine is in the same location as yours, but they are relatively different, thanks for answering friend, I must say that I made seeds available to bank of this lot, so whoever received it must have a capes equal to mine.

I had the same feeling when I grew seedgrown plants. By the time they got large, they looked like Bainskloof photos but genetics were across the board. They're hard to flower in indoor conditions apparently, I can say that's true :/ Also, the color seems to be less pronounced when you feed them regularly I noticed

Whoa, there’s that much variability with capensis? That’s kinda cool.

Yeah man, some were squat with many leaves, some grew upwards and more spread out. In a year, some had stems like a Capensis that was 2-3 years old. It was really weird.

I hear this form is much harder to get flowers. Is this true?

They don't flower as profusely as other Capes, throwing up scape after scape.
But if they're mature, happy, and in fresh media, they will usually flower once a year if they feel like it.
Mine have flowered several times, but I usually don't pay any attention to them. They would have flowered more frequently If I had given them proper attention.
