Drosera capensis - standard

Rating:
100% of 100
Quite possibly the easiest carnivorous plant to grow, the Drosera capensis is a great plant for the beginner. This all is the standard or "typical" variety which has green leaves and red tentacles.

Drosera capensis, 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. 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 will not need a dormancy unless it is subjected to very little light or cold temperatures, and then will have a semi-dormancy.
