Description
 
Drosera capensis, also called the Cape sundew, is perhaps the perfect carnivorous plant for a beginner. Cape sundew grow large stems with many long, green leaves. The end of each leaf is covered in small, red 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 flower stalks up to 12" tall with numerous showy, pink flowers. Drosera capensis grow year-round and can adapt to almost any condition.

This plant will be shipped bare-root with a 3" plastic pot and enough top-quality New Zealand long-fiber sphagnum moss to fill it. Planting and growing instructions will also be included.

Great April 25, 2017
Reviewer: justin kline from bozeman, MT United States  
My Capensis looks great. It started to dew up the first time I watered it and seems to be growing well. I'll probably have to get another one now....
