Starter Cape Sundew (Drosera capensis 'Narrow Leaf')
Plant size: less than 2 inches
A perfect beginner's plant!
This beautiful sundew is one of my favorites and it never ceases to amaze children and adults alike! Out of all the varieties of cape sundews, I like these the best. Better yet, it's probably the easiest carnivorous plant to grow. So easy, in fact, that it takes over collections within a year or two. Why? Because they self-seed, meaning that the plants produce hundreds, if not THOUSANDS of seeds every time they flower. Jostle the ripe seed pods and-- hundreds of delightful tiny little sundews pop up all over your collection within a month!
These cape sundews grow up to about 10" across when mature. They also mature quickly. They'll get pretty sticky when grown in strong light with humidity, and the leaves are famous for twisting around prey, moving dramatically. The pink flowers are delightful, borne One of the best plants out there!
A very rewarding plant for beginners and experts alike.
