SUNDEW: Drosera Capensis (Cape Sundew), Red form

  • R200.00 ZAR


  • Species: Drosera
  • The red variety of the Cape sundew (octopus plant) is a truly remarkable plant. During summer it has colourful tentacles and produces dark pink flowers
    • Each tentacle has a small droplet of glistening mucilage. Insects become stuck to the tentacles and are then digested by the plant
  • This is a fantastic plant that changes colour as the season progresses ranging from green to a tantalising rosegold to red
  • To maintain this level of redness, you will need to grow this plant in full sun conditions
    • In fall and winter, its leaves lose some of its redness, but it perks up again in spring and summer when light levels are stronger
  • While the other varieties of Cape sundews prefer bright and cool conditions, this variety prefers bright and warm conditions
  • Cape Sundews are easy growers and highly recommended for beginner carnivorous plant enthusiasts
  • 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!
