Drosera capensis seeds

Contains approximately 50 seeds.

Drosera capensis, also called the cape sundew, is perhaps the perfect carnivorous plant for a beginner.  The 'alba' variety of cape sundew has all-white leaves instead of the typical red coloration.  Cape sundew grow large stems with many long, green leaves.  The end of each leaf is covered in small tentacles with tiny droplets of mucilage on each one.  When an insect becomes stuck to a cape sundew leaf, the leaf slowly curls around the trapped insect and digests it.  Cape sundews produce tall flower stalks with numerous showy, pink flowers.  They grow year-round and can adapt to almost any condition.

A bit hard to get out of the package, but great! November 9, 2011
Reviewer: Ben Green from Madison, OH United States  
I ordered these because I wanted the whole experience from growing things from seed.  They came in a very neat little wax paper container in an envelope.  The hard part was getting them off the wax paper, that's the only reason I gave four, not five stars!  They're growing right now, so I'd recommend this to anyone who doesn't want to hassle with shipping or just wants to get the whole "from seed" experience!  Thanks Predatory Plants!
