    Good job! Is there a possibility of growing it inside, at a window sill? They do very well with that setup. I just don't trust tropical sundews and outside and aphids!

    My second capensis is outside with my VFT and both are doing quite well, but I agree that it might be a good idea to move the recovering one inside, to be safe.

    It may be just my luck, but whenever I've tried the warm tropicals outside (capensis, adelae, and spatulata) outside, they get aphids. In contrast, they all color up nicely just sitting at the window sill.

    Sorry for not updating in so long.

    Well, here are brand new pics of the D.capensis in question:



    Look, new growth! And (finally!) the return of dew! There's even a victim.

    So, the aphids were successfully gotten rid of by submerging the plant in distilled water for a few days. My friend was skeptical of this approach, offering up a trusted pesticide instead, but the submerging method did wonders for me.

    Good job, I'll remember this the next time I get some of those bugs.
