So... the first carnivorous plant I got, was my D. Capensis. Had it for now, well since august 08, and it must have been 6 months old, making it roughly two+ years old now. If I were to compare from when I bought it, it grew a good 6 inches, making it about 8 inches tall now.
Does this thing ever die or does it just keep going, and going, like the energizer bunny I love the palm tree look! How old is your oldest specimen of D. Capensis, and how tall is it? Mother plant, not generations of roots making offshoots...
***EDIT*** What I really wanted to know was from the long time growers, those that have had this plant for many years, eg. more than 2 years Anyone can kill a plant, I'm not interested in knowing how to kill a cape or how they always come back from the roots(but thanks for your replies anyways ), I'm interested in knowing what is the life expectancy of a capensis, and what height can a capensis get after x number of years?
(Do they get to 12 inches tall, and live to 10 years?)
