    I don't typically mist my sundews so I can't comment on whether that caused issues or not, though I would think it isn't necessary.

    Heh well I've been having issues with other plants lately. Something tells me there is perhaps something wrong with my growing conditions.

    are you asking how to keep the d. capensis constantly flowering non-stop? flowers take up a lot of a plant's energy. you should just let it rest and flower when its ready. trying to force it to flower non-stop will probably kill the plant. just my 2 cents.. i could be wrong.

    if it flowered for you, its probably growing well where it is. i don't really spray mine, and they have acclimated well to the avg humidity i give all my sundews. i'd say if they have been growing well for you with regards to size and their color, then just continue on. why change it all up all of a sudden just because it flowered? unless you are adjusting for seasonal changes, i'd say continue on as is unless you feel you are truly doing something that is harming the plant.

    Why bother? It's D. capensis... one of the many bomb-proof CPs. Leave the poor thing alone, it will adjust.

    Capensis care.......they need care?.....huh..I just stick mine in a west window and throw water at it when it gets dry.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.
