    If you want 1000 capes you can let it flower and drop the seed in its pot (and neighboring pots >.>) . I am growing my capes in pure peat and they love it. never seen a sundew grow so fast in my life.. .I would just scatter the seed wherever you want capes in a peat heavy mix / pure peat mix and bottom water so you dont drive the seeds into the media which will make them not sprout

    You can pretty much do whatever you want with the seeds... I'd be surprised if you genuinely tried to get them to sprout and failed. And it isn't important that they're sown immediately, but it doesn't hurt either. It's really not a picky plant, and it does not produce finicky seeds. It produces WAYTOOMANY and they all friggin' seem to germinate, LOL.

    capensis will self pollinate, so no need to do anything to the flowers. Just let em flower then sprinkle the seeds on whichever pot you want them to grow in.
