Drosera capensis 'Alba', Cape Sundew, live carnivorous plant, potted

$10.00

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. 'Alba' is an interesting variety because it lacks the red pigmentation of the typical capensis. They produce 12" tall flower scapes filled with showy white flowers.

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

Drosera Care: Sundews do best in partial shade to full sun. They are well suited for growing on window ledges or outdoors during warm months. They must be watered with non-chlorinated water preferably with a low TDS (between 0 and 25ppm). You can use rain water, RO 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 85°F. They are not too particular about humidity requirements. If your Drosera has little to no dew, increase light. They generally do well in open terrariums. *Tracyi will die back during the winter to form a “winter bud”. In the spring it will ‘wake up’ and begin producing leaves again.
