Drosera capensis (Cape Sundew) is one of the easiest carnivorous plants to grow. The narrow leaves have long, skinny leaves with white dewy ‘hairs’ on one side which it uses to trap prey. The white form has an all-over lime green coloring. It produces 12″ flower stems with pink or purple flowers.

We recommend planting this plug in our Drosera soil.

This plant ships as a 2″ fully rooted starter plant.
