    I AM SO HAPPY!
    so, here is what happened, I was on vacation and people were taking care of my cps. But, there was a week of really super hot days and my cape sundew turned black
    but just yesterday when I got back I saw that they had moved it inside and there was new growth emerging from the stem
    yay!!!
    I am going to visit the sarracenia in Oregon someday

    lol actually, speaking from personal experiance i think there are exactly 3 ways to kill a capensis, with any other way you might kill an individual plant but if yah tried a number of them one would live.

    #1. extended hard freeze below 0 degrees, several days should do the trick, they can take a light freeze over night(above 0) though will just kill leaves and it will come back from the roots or stems

    #2. extended dry period. from personal experiance dry, and i mean bone dry, for somewhere over a week. at one week bone dry, they will still come back from the roots.

    #3 extended period in poor light, will take several months to kill but it will EVENTUALLY do it, if any green is still present on the plant it will survive if brought out to better light.

    anything else such as less than ideal soil conditions i think yah can prolly get one to adapt to it be it straight cow manure or limestone, if yah try hard enough one will prolly adapt

    thats my opinion and im sticking to it.

    to add to number three or make this number 4 is to have a plastic bag over it with no holes in an undrained pot...rot from above and below! thats how i killed my first one...

    lol i dont count that stuff. lack of air circulation is a newbie mistake(i made it several times in the begining) my 3 can happen to anyone, experianced or not, it just takes a lapse in memory, forget the plant on the step outside can account for 1 &2, 3 would have to be on purpose as they will survive for years in just poor light, by #3 i ment close to total absence

    How about pouring gasoline on it and lighting a match?

    you bored Jim? actually, depending on how deep the roots go it might survive. wouldnt that be an interesting experiment?
