Drosera capensis


10 in stock



This cute carnivorous plant, the Cape sundew, is native to South Africa. Its thin leaves are covered with “tentacles” that secrete a sticky liquid that traps insects. The plants flower several times a year in spring through fall, with tall stalks of pretty pink flowers. They are bog plants, so do best planted in sphagnum moss with the pot sitting in a tray of water. We grow ours in full sun. ¬†Sundews are great for insect control, especially fungus gnats. Our mature plants have produced many seedlings, that are now well on their way to maturity and will probably bloom this year. These are great additions to an orchid collection.
