Drosera capensis 'Red', live carnivorous plant, potted

Drosera capensis 'Red', live carnivorous plant, potted

$15.00

Drosera capensis is one of the easiest carnivorous plants to grow. It has long, slender leaves with dewy 'hairs' on one side which it uses to trap prey. 'Red' is a recent variety known for its large size, lovely coloration, and pink center. The leaves reach skyward and curl making for a beautiful display. They produce very tall flowerscapes filled with showy pink flowers.

They are currently in a 3.5" pot and will be shipped potted.


Drosera Care: Sundews do best in part shade to bright sunlight. They are well suited for growing on window ledges. They must be watered with non-chlorinated water preferably with a low TDS (between 0 and 25ppm). You can use rain water or distilled. Allow to dry slightly but not completely in between waterings. When watering, place plants in a tray and pour water in tray about 1/2” (referred to as the tray method). Avoid watering the crown of the plant. Temperature should be maintained between 60°F and 80°F. Humidity isn't terribly important. Sundews generally tolerate typical household humidities. If your Drosera has little to no dew, increase light. They generally do well in a terrarium.
