Drosera capensis, Big Pink
FREE SHIPPING with a purchase of $200 or more!
This naturally occurring variety of Drosera capensis has very little, if any, red pigment. For most of the year, the tentacles are white. During the summer or in very bright sunny conditions, the tentacles become pink. When fully mature, plant can be 5 inches tall. 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.
Type of Plant: Tropical plant for windowsill growing.
Size: 5 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.

I ordered a white leaf Drosera Capensis and was surprised at how well packaged and cared for it was making my to me from across the country. There was lots of care and concern taken by Saracencia in getting the plant to me!
I bought this to battle fungus gnats in my spring seed starting endeavor. It is working beautifully.
Growing but ends looking dark
It came in great condition and has been thriving in my bog. Love it. There was even a bonus tiny baby in the pot.
