    Drosera capensis growth rate?

    Hey, all. I have obtained from Drosera capensis "giant", courtesy of dragonseye and I was wondering how long they take to mature. Thanks in advance.

    Entirely dependent on conditions. If your conditions are not good (low light, really dry etc.), could take well over a year. If they are good, couple months maybe.
    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.

    In that case, they'll probably reach maturity by the end of summer, thanks.

    D. capensis is one of the faster-growing sundews in my experience. I had a random seedling pop up in a water tray (I transplanted into a proper pot of course) that's up to flowering size in about a year with me mostly ignoring it. If you feed it well, it will grow even faster.
