    Just don't throw it a way. Check the roots to see if they are still alive. Then just either make root cuttings or repot the capensis. Wait a month at the very most and you should have some plantlets pop up. If I'm wrong I'll send you another capensis [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/mad.gif[/img] .

    I think capensis can be like like most weeds. Ignore it and it will flourish. Love it and care for it and it will curl up and die on you. The good thing is, they are easily replaced if they don't come back from the roots.

    My D.capensis is doing well and it's growing with my Sarrencia seedlings, the only problem is when the leafs get older, they rest on top of the pitchers :P. Also, there's a seedling D.capensis

    Great plants and have always been one of my favorites.

    Maybe your capensis just likes the pitchers so much it hugs them [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
    It is hard to always be a human being... people get in the way.

    My way to rid me of unwanted D. capensis? Eat the foliage and brew the roots! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_t_32.gif[/img]
