    I've seen the D. binata var. dichotoma I have outside move a little to engulf its prey, but D. capensis can completely double-over.

    mmm.. I have to fully disagree Anna. That largest leaf is nothing like intermedia IMO. I see it in the wild every week, so I have pretty good experience with that plant.

    If it's a D. capensis, you don't have to move it... from the looks of it, it loves its conditions. I have a bunch of mature capensis that are fine with no attention plonked in the weirdest of places

    Happy growing!

    It could be D. linearis. It looks a lot like capensis, but it's a North American native. D. linearis is not a commonly kept sundew. If it is linearis you're very lucky. It looks like you have a white flowered U. subulata that actually opened a flower too. Very lucky.
