My 2nd Cape Sundew is growing its flower stalk and I can count 15 flowers on it! Just wanted to share because that’s very exciting to me. My last one had 8 and made light pink flowers. Excited to see these ones.

I’ve been fertilizing with fish food every 2 weeks for the past month. I feel like it has helped the growth of the plant tremendously. I keep them on this windowsill because we had a good amount of bugs. But between these and the fly traps, there are no bugs left.

Does anyone have food recommendations for food? I heard Maxsea is really good also.

Thank you guys for checking out my plant!!
