    Introducing D. Capensis to the wild...huh?

    (reposted from Sundew forum)

    Found this randomly...and I'm not really sure of the point of this video. If this person happens to be one of yall, I'm not judging...but introducing Capensis to woods, streams, gardens, and lawns seem really odd, much less ecologically sound. Don't think they'll survive anyway.

    That's a very stupid idea. For one, it looks like all but possibly the last one were planted in nitrogen/nutrient rich soil. Also, I don't know how successful an etiolated D. capensis will do after being planted under a tree in the woods. It seemed more like a joke than anything else- especially that one where she plants it in the middle of a grass patch that will definitely be mowed...

    I could just imagine if D. capensis took hold in nutrient enriched soils; they would become the new Dandelion.

    I've thrown "used" peat into my flower garden. D. capensis sprouted in the spring and was given away to my friends, who all managed to kill them.

    I think that was a joke, and a very bad one at that.
