    D. capensis Baineskloof grows tall fast, and it looks different from a typical capensis. It has much shorter tentacles and ten times as many, making the leaf look like a hair brush. In my experience, the leaves themselves are shorter than a typical. PERFECT example

    I don't think it is the same as the giant form.


    Mine is recovering from some pretty bad damage- it was killed to the roots. Once I can get it blooming, expect seeds.
    If you shake a rain stick, you get rain. I need a hamata stick.

    I am having issues with my plant looking normal for the past year...it keeps clustering up, and its leaves are stubby at the moment, so I haven't been able to get any good pics yet. My specimen has such weird behavior....
    As for a good pic, the one below has to be the best specimen I've seen of the "Giant, 60cm tall" form.
    This plant is raised by Vince81 on cpukforum:

    As of now, I only have one plantlet that I've successfully propagated so far from a leaf cutting taken just a month ago...so I plan to take a few more and see if I can get any to grow normally for once- and then I'll be able to determine whether i have the true form or not...
