    thanks

    Yeah, it grows VERY vigorously, putting out a new leaf at least one a week. What that picture doesn't show, is that all around that capensis are dionaea in the same pot. It grows outside in full sun just like them, and, like I said, it grows VERY well. I also think I've spotted the beginning of a flower stalk near the bottom.

    It's always a pleasure seeing a well-grown D. capensis. Wonderful plant that doesn't get the recognition it deserves!

    So it lives outside in full sun?

    Thank you.

    Yes. Although at this time of year I've decided to move my fly traps to an area that becomes
    shaded much more quickly during the day so as to encourage dormancy. Before that it was
    getting the same sun intensity as they were and it was fine.

    I'm not sure if I'll be able to pull this off in the middle of summer when LA gets its daytime
    heat but I'm definitely gonna try. This is one of the few places in the world that has a
    Mediterranean climate, and that allows for interesting gardening. I'd like to get a Dewy Pine
    some time since I can match its outdoor climate almost perfectly.
