Plant care

The Drosera capensis grows best in a standard peat-perlite soil mixture. Araflora has many kinds of soil mixtures for sale, so you can either buy a ready made mix, or blend different kinds together for a unique soil mixture. Because of its resistance to extremes, the Cape sundew does well outside and inside, as long as it is kept in a sunny and humid area.
