Drosera capensis (Cape Sundew) is one of the easiest carnivorous plants to grow. The narrow leaf form has long, skinny leaves with red dewy ‘hairs’ on one side which it uses to trap prey. 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.
