I grow my D.capensis's out side with my vfts and sarras. They are on tray water and seem to be doing fine.
Hope this helps, Pat.

So, if there was successful pollination, will the seeds just fall out on there own? Or do you need to take apart the dead flower? (not sure what to call it :roll: )

Once the flowe has been pollinated, the flower will shrivel up and a "seed pod" will egin to form at the based of the shriveled up flower. The seed pods will then ripen and turn brown, At this point I cut off the whole flower stalk and put it in a paper envelope. If you do not do thgis the seed will come out on its own. D.capensis is such a proliffic seed producer that it is a weed(in that it sprouts allmost anywhere) in most peoples CP collections.
Hope this helps, Pat.
