(56 reviews)

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.

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

    D. Capensis White Leaf

    Posted by Joseph M. on April 8, 2020

    I am very pleased with the plant and the service I received. The sundew arrived within days and in excellent condition! After receiving full sun and high humidity for only a day, it's already catching plenty of fungus gnats. Sarracenia Northwest were easy to deal with and direct. I will definitely buy more plants from SN and recommend it to friends.

    This was my second plant from Sarracenia Northwest, and like the first it arrived healthy and perfectly packaged. Great plants, great customer service, and great prices. I have no reason to shop anywhere else!

    Has been dying slowly over the last month

    Posted by Paige Heinen on June 10, 2019

    Despite following all care instructions, my three Drosera have been slowly losing leaves. When they arrived they had no dew, and I thought that might be a result of stress from travel, but they have never had more than a little dew and have been losing their arms one by one with rotting starting at the end of the leaf. At the beginning I didn't feel it was serious enough to contact customer service but it's clear now that there's not much I can do :( . *** RESPONSE BY SARRACENIA NORTHWEST *** We're always here to help you! I checked my messages, and I didn't see any from you. There are several factors that affect a plant's health, and without knowing the specifics on how you have been caring for the plant, I can't diagnose the problem. Lack of sufficient sunlight is the number 1 reason for sundew death. Make sure to grow your plant is in a very sunny windowsill with several hours of direct sunligt. High-mineral water is also major factor for sundew death. Make sure to read the information provided in the yellow brochure that came with your plants.
