    I had a plant that started a root like support similar to this. I repoted the plant (mainly because it outgrew the three inch pot it was in) and buried this in the process. I didn't get any pictures of it though.

    Very cool D admirabalis photo capslock.

    I have a variety of D. capensis that grows upwards quickly. It does make buttress roots.

    i wonder if you can do the same thing with the slackii and admirabilis how you'd treat a capensis when it grows too tall: decapitate, replant, repeat.

    anybody willing to try it out?

    Much like the old joke about Keith Richards -- that he cannot be killed by conventional weapons -- the very same is true of Drosera capensis . . .

    yes. but i was too lazy to pick it out. it was growing in a water tray--and so after about a month of persisting, it died.


    new question: is there a means by which to create a multi-crowned plant? i kinda want a capensis bush.
