    I have a pot of D. capensis 'hitchikers' that appear to be of the 'broad leaf' variety. In any case, most of them are about 3 years old and the longest leaves are now approaching 8 inches including stem. Isn't this standard growth? My 'alba' and 'all red' have gotten almost as big. Just how much bigger is this 'giant' everyone is speaking of?

    I have a 4 month old Giant too, and yea, they're freakin huge. When they pop up as seedlings, it is completely unbeleivable that it could be a sundew. Anyway, my leaf blades are about 1 3/4 inches long, but my freind that I got the seed from has one with 4 inch dew blades. And the crowns get HUGE!!! So make sure you make room for him.

    this might just be me but it doesnt look particularily large...........ive grown some big capensis......easiest way is to make sure there is just one in the pot and give it a ton of light......when yah crowd them they stay smaller.......
