    It really depends on the type of African sundew. Remember that Africa is a very big place, with both tropical and sub-temperate species. Some can't stand anything below 60F, others, like capensis and aliciae as above, can take freezing temps for a while, they just come back from roots afterward.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    It depends on which part of the dark continent you're referring to. The largest regias I've seen were grown with temperatures into the 40s, and capensis has been known to come back from its roots after sustaining freezing temperatures.

    Yep. Although the aliciae of mine stayed as little rosettes, didnt die down at all like capensis does. Just got more compact and turned dark red.
