    When will it bloom?

    I got a capensis 2 years ago, it flowered once and never did again. Should it be flowering soon?

    Drosera capensis flowers in my greenhouse all year long (natural sun only).. you have pics of your plant?
    It's most likely that it isn't getting enough light, or it needs more food, but those are just guesses.

    Just like Aaron, all my varieties of capensis try to send up a flower stalk roughly about every 2 months.

    My capensis sends up a flower every time one of it's current flower stalks is kinda drying up. I imagine yours will too, eventually.

    However, it really only started doing a lot of flowers once it started getting enough light, back in the old windowsill I'd see a flower stalk about once a month. Now that I have him under the lights I see them constantly -- if the plant isn't sending up a stalk then one's already blooming.

    I guess what I'm saying is, how's your light? Are the tentacles on your plant nice and red? I also started feeding mine powdered dried bloodworms (a form of fish food made of bug larvae) -- maybe that's part of it.

    The tentacles are very red. They have enough light, as my nepenthes grow a lot there, even though i take them outside. Also, i feed it not so much, but now i think i will. I feed it dried flies. I will feed it soon enough. My moranensis made a lot of plantlents on the same windowsill.
