Drosera capensis

  • Sale
  • Regular price $9.99


Drosera capensis, also called the Cape sundew, is perhaps the perfect carnivorous plant for a beginner. Cape sundew carnivorous plants 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 sundew carnivorous plants 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 sundew carnivorous 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.
