Drosera Capensis - 25 Fresh Seeds

Drosera capensis, commonly known as the Cape sundew, is a small rosette-forming carnivorous species of perennial sundew native to the Cape in South Africa. Drosera capensis because of its size, easy to grow nature, and the copious amounts of seed it produces, it has become one of the most common sundews in cultivation.

In early summer or late spring, sundew Drosera capensis produces multiple, small, five-petaled pink flowers at the end of scapes which can be up to 30 cm tall. Drosera capensis Flowers individually open in the morning and close by mid afternoon, lasting just one day each with the next one up the scape opening the following day the lower ones on the scape can thus be open or "past" while the ones at the top are still forming.

Sundew/drosera flowers can self-pollinate upon closing and produce copious quantities of very small, spindle-shaped seeds, which are released from the capsules that form when the flowers have died.

Under horticultural conditions, carnivorous plant enthusiasts find that these sundew - drosera capensis seeds have a tendency to find their way into neighbouring plant pots where they germinate readily, giving D. capensis a reputation as a weed.

Drosera capensis produces strap-like leaves, up to 3.5 cm long (not including the petiole) and 0.5 cm wide, which, as in all sundews, are covered in brightly coloured tentacles which secrete a sticky mucilage that traps arthropods. No need to fertilise, Drosera capensis gets all its nutrients from digested insects!

Drosera Capensis growing instructions included.
