Drosera capensis: the Cape Sundew

The Cape Sundew, Drosera capensis is one of the easiest sundews to grow.  It is one of the most recommended as a beginner's plant.   Very often, if given optimal conditions this sundew can become a weed in a person's carnivorous plant collection.  This species does not go dormant.  Please refer back to the Basic Care sections regarding soil and water.   It is easily propagated by seeds, leaf or root cuttings.  Large plants may need to be re-potted every few years .
