Drosera capensis

(8 reviews)

Named for its natural habitat, Cape Town in South Africa, this plant grows vigorously. As a mountainous species, this plant likes a very sunny window with mild temperatures. It may slow down significantly during the hottest parts of summer, but watch it take off again when the weather cools down. This is a great plant for the first-time grower.

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.

    Drosera Capensis

    Recently purchase two Drosera capensis (BOGO), both plants arrived in pristine condition! It’s nice that the plants come already potted, it takes the worry out of whether your doing it correctly. I can’t say enough good things about SN, I’ve ordered a number of plants from them and the quality is always the same, TOP NOTCH!! When I’m ready to purchase more SN is my “go to” nursery! Keep up the GOOD WORK!!!

    Plants are thriving

    The packaging was perfect and the little stickies are already growing back after 2 days so they're definitely healthy little plants! One even has a little off shoot next to it. This is my second order from them and first for myself. All plants have come healthy and well packaged. I'm super excited to watch these guys grow myself ?

    Very big and growing like corn. Flowers are starting to bloom, and will collect the seeds and plant them. This is a wonderful and very pretty plant. A must for a house, Love it.
