SUNDEW: Drosera Capensis, White form

  • R100.00 ZAR


  • Species: Drosera
  • Drosera capensis, also called the Cape sundew or octopus plant, is perhaps the perfect carnivorous plant for a beginner
  • The "Alba" variety of Cape sundew has all-white tentacles instead of the typical red coloration, and their flowers are white instead of pink. Cape sundews grow long stems with many long, green leaves
    • The end of each leaf is covered in small tentacles with tiny droplets of mucilage on each one. When an insect becomes stuck to a cape sundew leaf, the leaf slowly curls around the trapped insect and digests it
  • 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
  • Drosera capensis grow year-round and can adapt to almost any condition
  • Whether you prefer starting off with a younger plant and watch it grow into full majestic glory over the years or jumping in with more munch, right from the get go, we've got you covered!  Cultivo is all about choices and our plants are available in various sizes and options to suit your every need.  These are medium to near-flowering size plants, sold either bareroot or already potted in our deluxe carnivorous plant soil to take the hassle out of repotting. Simply unwrap, water and enjoy!
