Plant care

The Cape sundew is a strong carnivorous plant that is easy to care for. Both in the garden and the home, Drosera capensis can thrive. A sunny, moist spot is best for this plant. The Cape sundew requires sufficient water, preferably soft water or rainwater, because these types of water contain less calcium and nutrients. Added plant nutrients are not necessary. The soil should be slightly acidic. Araflora uses pure peat for this plant, but a mix of sand and peat is also suitable.
