Drosera capensis, Big Pink

(45 reviews) Write a Review
Big Pink is a selected breeding of the white leaf and red leaf forms of Drosera capensis. In bright sunlight, the plant produces long pink leaves that are larger than its parent plants. As a cool-tropical species, this plant likes it sunny but cool. It may slow down significantly during the hottest parts of summer, but watch it take off again when the summer heat passes. Great for the first-time grower.

    D. capensis

    I ordered this one along with a D. spatulata. they both arrived quickly. This one took a little longer to acclimate than the other plant, but eventually it perked up and has lots of dew. I'm very happy with both of them.

    Healthy Beautiful Sundew

    Posted by Unknown on July 2, 2020

    Our plant arrived quickly and in good health. It's been a month now, and it is thriving indoors in Boston (sunny window/artificial lights). Dews have become big and look beautiful in the morning sun. It also catches fruit flies and gnats if any.

    Great big capacity.

    It captured a lot of fruit flies/fungus gnats, which is the exact reason I purchased! Using rainwater exclusively, and the plant seems happy with it.
