    i think the sundew your talking about is a d. capensis but until your more descriptive and have a pic then we'll no for sure ,a dn jmenvft , why did you post that in this forum , in this topic ? and you may have actually saw a cobra lily except of a s. psitacina because they are very simalar , or the company is making a scam on what they sell .

    The only ones I`ve seen at lowes have been lanky d.adelae so thats probably what it is. D.adelae likes semi shady conditions, wet soil,high humidity,and 40-90 degree temps.

    Hi Myke66,
    This is what Savage Garden says on D. capensis: "Cape sundews grow best in a temperature range from fourty to eighty degrees. They are very tolerant of extremes from freezing to one hundred degrees, but only for brief periods. The plants grow year round and have no dormancy requirement. If the temperature drops below freezing, the crowns will die away but the plant will return from their roots and stems when conditions improve. Roots have been known to survive temperature drops to fifteen degrees."

    I strongly urge you to post a pic of your plant for identification before you follow ANY guideline for cultivation. A misidentification could result in tragedy.

    OK that looks similar to adelae to me, not 100% sure, but I THINK thats what it is. (If anyone knows for sure please correct me). D. adelae likes bright shade, mid-high humidity and +65 temps (great for a north or south window if you dont get too cold of a winter.) No dormancy requirement. Very hardy and forgiving newbie plant. Mine is currently thriving in the back corner of my seedling tank.

    Good luck
