    I'm a bit late, but welcome to TF nonetheless!
    Nice capensis. They often get a bad wrap for being 'too easy', but I love them. They grow quickly and get lots of dew. Don't worry, you'll be addicted soon.

    I think its probably just because of the low light intensity that the plant is getting. I bet it would color up a great deal if it was in strong light, which an alba wouldnt do.

    Welcome to the forums! And yay for another 'dew lover!

    You just can't resist that sticky, sparkly goo.

    D. capensis leaves will slowly wrap around larger prey...but not gnats. Somewhere I have a photo of a leaf curled all around a moth.

    see, thats one thing that I was thinking...maybe the gnats are too small and it might only curl around something thats a bit bigger. Thing is, I dont know if im ready to give my cape something bigger. Its been doing fine with the extremely tiny gnats, so in the past few days I have tried dropping in a couple of very very very small ants. They all put up a mighty struggle for about an hour, and then eventually are able to walk away alive and well. I can only imagine what would happen if I put a large ant or other large insect. Maybe my plant just needs to get stronger and bigger.

    Welcome aboard! My mother-in-law gave me a Peace Lily that was infested with something. I put my newly aquired D. adelae next to it and a few weeks later the problem was gone, and the D. adelae was covered in whatever it was! I'm sure the old ladies now think of you like one of those "weirdies" like the woman at my mail room thinks of me whenever I get plants in the mail!
