    Carnivorous plants can feed themselves as soon as the first true or trap leaves are fully developed. Just so long as there is prey small enough available for them to trap - usually springtails or other micro fauna.

    I've never deliberately grown Drosera capensis from seeds. I would wildly guess 2-6 weeks after germination.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    As soon as I can grind up dried blood worms small enough to land on a leaf (without being overly tedious) I feed them.
    Changes in leaf size w/o food are almost unoticible- with food =scary fast growth.
