Drosera Capensis (Red Form)
A natural insect controller in your home.
Drosera capensis (the Cape Sundew) is the most common sundew in cultivation, since it is so easy to grow (once it is given favorable conditions). Drosera capensis originates from the subtropical Cape region of South Africa. Drosera capensis is commonly known to become a weed in sundew collections because the tall flower stalks produce copious amounts of seeds. There are many forms of Drosera capensis, which include the typical, narrow-leaf, broad-leaf, wide-leaf, “Red”, ‘Albino’, Giant, and Bains Kloof forms, as well as many other location forms. Most forms of D. capensis that I’ve tried so far have been very easy and eye-catching sundews.
