    It should take a few weeks to make seed. All of the flowers will generally bloom about one every other day or so. Then watch the pods to start breaking open. I take a big dinner plate, hold the flower stem over it and tap gently on it. The seeds will fall right out. There will be thousands of tiny little black seeds.

    D. capensis can quickly become a weed if you are not careful.

    Good luck,
    Steve

    I always read that capensis are the easiest to germinate and grow and yet I have a tray with capensis and omissa pink seeds in LFS substrate and even though capensis germinated faster than omissa pink, omissa seedlings have shown more growth.

    My capensis seedlings have pretty much stayed the same size for a while... Tried to feed a few seedlings and did not notice any improvement...

    Feeding won't show results right away, but give it time. It'll have a growth spurt from the feeding within a few days to a week. If you compare it to non-feed seedlings, you'll see a big difference.
