    since you live in SJ.... keep it outside year round in full sun! keep it watered with RO, rain, DI or distilled water. thats about it oh...and a peat based mix(nothing like miracle grow or premixed mixes.)

    D. capensis dosent go into dormancy. if temps go below freezing, the plant dies and when it gets warmer it comes back from the roots with a fury !

    Drosera capensis does not require dormancy. It can be grown on most windows. Use a mix of peat, sand, and perlite for soil. Make sure there is no added fertilizers. If you aren't getting much dew then you most likely need more light.

    Many CP's don't have dormancy; those that do are fairly manageable.
