    the thing is, I'm glad it doesn't flower. I was just wondering if it's unusaul for a cape sundew not to flower, since the conditions for my other plants in the same terrarium seems to be good enough for them to flower.

    That's pretty strange. Mine flowered within one month of me owning it! If ya have any extra, I'd like one too. Do ya have any pics?

    You need to feed it. I noticed my indoor capensis flower much less than my outdoor capensis untill I started really feeding them and then the flowers would not stop. Try that.

    Its funny.. everyone is trying to give advice on how to make it flower.. personally if I had a D. capensis that would not flower, I would patent it, register it as a new cultivar, and then clone the heck outta it. A D. capensis that will not become a weed... you could make a fortune from this... the possibilities are endless..
    There are only 2 infinite things... the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not too sure about the universe.

    I got mine back in March and its starting to flower... for the second time. The first time, I let it flower, and even though I was carefull somehow little fugitive sundews have appeared in some of my other pots. This time I'm hacking off the stalks.

    It seems to me that a non-flowering capensis is the best thing ever.

    like i have said before even poorly grown capensis will flower after a time or they will die. it doesnt take much at all to get them to flower. a capensis that HAS NOT FLOWERED PERIOD in 8 years is a very interesting individual indeed
