    Give the capensis an inch...

    Well they haven't taken a mile yet, but they're getting there. To be honest I'm not even going to repot the ones on the lower left, they'll just take over the new pot. Let them crowd themselves out.


    Bonus: one of my oldest D. capensis:

    Yeah, that's how I got into this position in the first place! Photos were taken after I'd cleared off three flowering stalks, leaving the other species to flower and wondering if they can catch up.

    Can capensis self pollinate? I have one that came up in a pot of pygmy sundews, and I'm kinda worried about being overrun when it reaches flowering age.
