Drosera capensis, Broad Leaf

(99 reviews)

Named for its natural habitat, the cape region of South Africa, Cape sundews grow vigorously and produces large leaves at maturity. It's considered a mountainous plant, so it likes a very sunny window with mild temperatures. The broad leaf form has wider leaves than the more common narrow leaf form. It also grows slower than other forms of Cape sundews and is more temperamental to hot conditions. However, it matures into a larger plant overall.

Type of Plant: Tropical plant for windowsill growing.
Size: 6 inches across when mature.
Sunlight: Partial sun. Avoid hot sunlight.
Water: Low-mineral water (50 ppm or less).
Soil: Equal parts peat moss and perlite only.
Temperatures: Tolerant of cool temperatures but always protect from frost.

• Juvenile plant, acclimated for windowsill growing.
• Shipped in a 3-inch pot. Care info is included.

    Arrived in beautiful condition and very healthy. It has been thriving in a south window and having the occasional snack of a fungus gnat from my many other plant pots. I am officially hooked on carnivorous plants.

    The plats I' ordered arrived in superb condition - well packed and undamaged in travel across the country. THe instruction guide was really helpful to get the plants going. I had an additional follow-up question and I got a timely and helpful response. I subsequently came back and bought more. Great, knowledgeable company with great service.
