    I wouldn't leave D. capensis outside all year round in New Jersey. I used to live in central Jersey, and I'm sure the temps can't be that different. It would often go below freezing and sometimes to 0, and I don't think D. capensis can take 3-4 months of that.

    For the most part you can grow temperate Drosera in the same manner as VFTs - respect their dormancy requirements if any. A few are happier with less light, a few like more water.

    Sub-tropicals such as Drosera capensis for the most part do not have dormancy requirements. Grow them like your VFTs spring, summer and fall. In winter grow them indoors under lights or on a warm windowsill - south facing with a few hours direct sunlight would be ideal. Night temps should probably not drop below the 50's for long.

    Grow it INSIDE in a east or west window. d. Adalea is another good one for growing inside and VERY freely spreads like wild fire!

    Jersey gets too cold outside for them. Mine are inside year round in a west window.
