    I have many cape sundews (cuz they spread like weeds, even into other pots!) and mine seem to exhibit a lot of movement under proper conditions. As to where you can acquire some of the plants online you could try ********************.com (that is where I have gotten all my plants besides ones bought at a local nursery and the butterwort I won from this site). I know it isnt fair to post other CP sellers on this site but I don't think this site sells the plants Travis wants.

    Certain plants are large at California Carnivores. Cape sundews I saw there 2 years ago were 3"-4" diameter each with 2 plants in one pot. And I got a S.Rubra ssp Rubra that was very colorful about 5" tall with so many growing points I lost my count when I tried counting. They grew much larger the following year (one inch mouths), and some drosera sprouted out nowhere! I guess they got stratified over that winter. Unfortunatly the plant died from fungus during the following winter [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img].

    Ceph, your from San Francisco, you should visit California Carnivores after the place is done moving. It'll probably only take about an hour or so drive, took me about an hour and a half from Pleasant Hill. I plan to visit again this summer to see the new greenhouse and build my collection of 6 plants.

    If you order from B-Dean (******) be prepared for a LOOOOOOOOOOONG wait and poor response to email. Customer service ain't his forte.

    Travis, if you want a large cape sundew, try Home Depot. California Carnivores is definitely a pricey place to buy plants from. Better yet, post this in the "trade" forum on this site. The cape sundew grows like a weed and I'm sure a lot of us (myself not included, yet) would be more than happy to part with a couple of these plants.
