Name: Drosera capensis 'Typical'

Why we love it: This variety of sundew is the easiest to care for and a great beginner carnivorous plant. This variety doesn't need to go dormant unlike other varieties providing year round interest in your space.

Light: Bright indirect to direct light. This plant thrives with several hours of direct light. 

Water: Maintain soil moisture, this plant does not want to dry out. Water using distilled water only. 

Pet Friendly? Yes, these plants are non-toxic!
