Drosera capensis 'Big Pink', live carnivorous plant, potted


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. 'Big Pink' is a recent variety known for its large size and lovely pink coloration throughout the plant. They produce very tall flower scapes filled with showy pink flowers.

Drosera and Pinguicula Care: Sundews and Butterworts do best in part shade / filtered 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. It is important to keep humidity at a minimum of 50% in order to ensure proper dew production. If your Drosera has little to no dew or your Pinguicula is not sticky, increase humidity. They generally do well in a terrarium.
